Over 400,000 Canadians Suffer From Sjögren’s Syndrome and Often Experience Dry Mouth
Sjögren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder where the
body’s immune system attacks fluid-secreting glands, such as
the salivary and tear glands2.
Most Sjögren’s Syndrome Patients
In fact, women make up 90% of Sjögren’s patients
with symptoms causing mouth discomfort and irritation.

symptoms, other signs of Sjögren’s syndrome include
(in no particular order):
- Dry skin

(between the jaw and ears)
