What Is Sjogren's Disease?

Q:
What is Sjogren’s disease?

A:
Sjogren’s disease causes your immune system to go wrong and attack healthy cells. Your white blood cells may attack glands which are in charge of making moisture. When this happens, glands fail to produce tears and saliva. Common symptoms consist of dry mouth, more bad teeth, inflammation of gums, dry eyes, burning feeling that moves from your stomach to chest and so on.

If you have symptoms above, you need to consult your doctor and have your body checked. Although Sjogren’s disease is a lifelong problem, most people with Sjogren’s disease lead healthy lives and do not have serious problem. You can do all things you love without any changes.
