World Sjogren's Day!!
« on: July 23, 2013, 01:03:54 PM »
Here is what I posted on my facebook page yesterday.  Pass it on!!

Tomorrow is World Sjogren's Day!!!

Sj?gren?s is a chronic autoimmune disease in which people?s white blood cells attack their moisture-producing glands.

Although the hallmark symptoms are dry eyes and dry mouth, Sj?gren?s may also cause dysfunction of other organs such as the kidneys, gastrointestinal system, blood vessels, lungs, liver, pancreas, and the central nervous system. Patients may also experience extreme fatigue and joint pain and have a higher risk of developing lymphoma.

All instances of Sj?gren?s are systemic, affecting the entire body. While some people experience mild discomfort, others suffer debilitating symptoms that greatly impair their functioning.

Tomorrow, think of a friend or a family member who has Sjogren's Syndrome. Think of me.
