Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder. That means your immune system, which typically fights off infections, mistakenly attacks the body’s moisture-producing glands, causing symptoms such as dry eyes and dry mouth. The condition can also affect joints and muscles, as well as organs such as the lungs or kidneys.
The team of specialists at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center, from rheumatologists to rehabilitation therapists, can treat your symptoms and help prevent complications so you can maintain a good quality of life.
Treatment for Sjogren’s syndrome may include lifestyle changes and medication to address symptoms.
