Sjögren’s Syndrome is a chronic autoimmune disease that preferentially attacks and damages the salivary, tear and mucous-secreting glands, resulting in dry eye, dry mouth and swollen salivary glands but it can affect any organ causing serious complications. As many as 430,000 Canadians, mostly women live with this Sjögren’s yet it is often under-recognized, under-treated and under-diagnosed.
