Afflicting one in 83 Americans, Sjögren's is a serious and systemic autoimmune disease that, along with symptoms of extensive oral and ocular dryness, can lead to other serious complications including profound fatigue, chronic pain, major organ involvement, neuropathies and lymphoma. While there is no cure for Sjögren's, approaches exist to help manage and treat aspects of the disease, and this revised handbook offers everything readers need to understand and cope with their diagnosis.

The Sjögren's Book, Fifth Edition is a comprehensive and authoritative guide, produced by the Sjögren's Foundation and its medical advisors and edited by a leading authority on autoimmune disorders. This expanded edition provides readers with the best medical and practical information on this disease, bringing together current thinking about Sjögren's in an easily readable and understandable book and providing important new content on areas not covered in previous editions. With more than fifty chapters written by leading experts, this handbook illuminates the major clinical aspects of the disease and is loaded with practical tips and advice as well as scientific advancements in the field. Indeed, it offers a wide-ranging look at the many faces of Sjögren's, covering diagnosis, the many organ systems that can be affected, emotional burden and management, treatment options, and hope for the future.

Recognized as the bible for Sjögren's sufferers, this reliable and informative guide is the first place for patients to look when they have questions about this disabling disease. It is a valuable aid that patients can use while discussing their illness with their physician and an excellent resource for family members. Because Sjögren's is greatly underdiagnosed, this handbook is a particularly valuable resource for healthcare professionals.
