ICYMI: Today is World Sjögren's Day

July 23rd is World Sjogren's Day | Lubricity

On July 23rd, we honor Swedish ophthalmologist, Dr. Henrik Sjögren, who first observed the immune system disorder characterized by dry eyes and dry mouth, now known as Sjögren’s Disease. This is how the Sjögren’s Foundation describes the day:

“It is a day meant to put a face on the millions of people who live with this disease or suffer from symptoms and have yet to be diagnosed. It gives everyone touched by Sjögren’s a vehicle to reach out and educate those close to them – family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, etc. – about the disease. It is the ideal opportunity for you to have your voice heard and to spread awareness about this life-altering disease.” 

Together, let’s help raise awareness for Sjögren’s Disease and offer resources for those who need them.

Unfortunately, dry mouth symptoms may lead to other oral health complications such as halitosis, mouth sores, difficulty chewing or speaking, and many others.
