Sjogren’s Syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that essentially affects salivary and lacrimal glands. These glands help the body to create moisture in the eyes and mouth, in the form of saliva and tears. While dry mouth is a common symptom of Sjogren’s Syndrome, other signs of Sjogren’s Syndrome consist of joint pain, rashes, fatigue, dry skin, inflammation of organs and many more. When a person is suffering from Sjogren’s Syndrome, his/he body fails to produce enough moisture.

It might be difficult for a general physician to diagnose the condition as the signs and symptoms are similar to side effects of some medications. Blood tests, eye tests along with imaging tests such as sialography, salivary scintigraphy and biopsy are all needed for definitive diagnosis.
