found an interesting new health article today
« on: August 02, 2011, 03:49:09 PM »
Under www.cbsnew.com   - in their health area

they have an "gallery" called "Uh-oh 12 diseases doctors overlook"

And the disease they had listed as number 7 (under the #8 tab) .............



                                   Sjogren's Syndrome   !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Was surprised to see it actually listed!
Maybe that means more people might learn about it,   or at least hear about it.

female 50+, no thyroid - levthyroxin 125mcg; Primary Sjogrens:  Dry mouth; Dry eyes-thera tears, Restasis twice daily;

Very interesting, Ohiocat.  Thanks for sharing...seems like more and more we can find some info. about Sjogren's in different media.  ;)  Maybe the word is beginning to get around.
