Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, Network Spring 2006: A very basic, and very inaccurate, definition of Sjorgren’s syndrome is that of a disorder that causes dry eyes and a dry mouth. But as most sufferers will tell you, it’s much more than that. Sjorgren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder that can lead to complications such as profound fatigue, depression and lymphoma, and while it affects both women and men alike, perimenopausal women represent the highest-risk group. It is often misdiagnosed, and many health providers are not aware of all of its potential somatic effects. This book, complete with information on diagnosis, clinical aspects, tips and advice, acts as a resource for both patients with Sjorgren’s and the doctors who care for them.
