Sjogren's Syndrome Treatment

Sjogren's syndrome is a disorder of your immune system identified by its two most common symptoms which are dry eyes and a dry mouth. The condition often accompanies other immune system disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Although you can develop Sjogren's syndrome at any age, most people are older than 40 at the time of diagnosis. It can be difficult to diagnose because the signs and symptoms vary from person to person and can be similar to those caused by other diseases.

About Sjogren's Syndrome Treatment

In Sjogren's syndrome, your immune system first targets the glands that make tears and saliva. To manage the condition, the focus is on alleviating dryness and systemic symptoms. Relief is provided for dry eyes and mouth through artificial tears, saliva substitutes, and moisture-retaining products. Immunosuppressive medications help control inflammation and slow disease progression. The most common symptom is chronic, unusual dryness in your eyes, mouth or vagina. 

Procedure of Sjogren's Syndrome Treatment

Sjögren's syndrome, a chronic autoimmune disorder affecting glands responsible for tear and saliva production, lacks a cure, but its symptoms can be managed through a tailored approach.

The treatment typically involves addressing specific manifestations, such as dry eyes and mouth, with artificial tears, lubricating eye drops, and saliva substitutes.

Medications like NSAIDs or corticosteroids may be employed for anti-inflammatory effects, and immunosuppressive drugs like hydroxychloroquine may be considered in severe cases.

Systemic complications are managed with targeted medications, while dental care becomes pivotal in preventing oral issues. Humidifiers and lifestyle adjustments, like a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, aim to retain moisture.

Regular monitoring by a rheumatologist ensures adjustments to the treatment plan, highlighting the importance of a multidisciplinary approach and ongoing research for improved management in the future.
