We try to bring you up to date information related to Sjögrens Syndrome from UK and World Wide sources, in a plain speaking style, so both patients and busy healthcare professionals can use it as a basic source of information and reference.
The condition has many complexities and articles on this website highlight a number of both well known and more obsure issues related to both Primary and Secondary Sjögrens Syndrome.
