Sjögrens Syndrome

 Sjögren's Syndrome is a chronic autoimmune condition in which white blood cells attack moisture-producing glands.  The most common resulting symptoms are dry eye and dry mouth.  Additionally, patients may experience joint pain, fatigue, and disfunction of other organs including the kidneys and liver.  This condition affects roughly 4 million people, most of which are undiagnosed.  

SjöTM is an in-office test for the diagnosis of Sjögren's Syndrome.  The test involves a finger-prick blood test that measures for seven markers for Sjögren's Syndrome.  Test results are usually available after 10-14 days.  To schedule your dry eye evaluation including the SjöTM test, please request an appointment here
