World Sjögren's Day!
What is Sjögren's?
On July 23, we will celebrate World Sjögren’s Day, hosted by the Sjögren’s Foundation.
As stated by the Sjögren’s Foundation, Sjögren’s is a systemic disease that affects the entire body, with symptoms that may remain steady or worsen overtime. The way the disease progresses varies widely, making it difficult for patients and their physicians to effectively diagnose and treat. While some people experience mild discomfort, other experiences debilitating symptoms that greatly impair their ability to function. Early diagnosis and proper treatments are crucial toward preventing serious complications and greatly improve a patient’s quality of life.
Roughly half of the time Sjögren’s occurs alone, while in the other half of cases, it can occur in the presence of another autoimmune connective tissue disease, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, or Scleroderma.
In addition, Sjögren’s is often misrepresented as being a rare disease, however, it is estimate that four million Americans are living with this disease, making it one of the most prevalent autoimmune diseases in the country.
What are the symptoms?
While many patients experience dry eyes and mouth, fatigue and joint pain, Sjögren’s can also cause dysfunction of organs that includes the…
- gastrointestinal system
- blood vessels
- central nervous system
Patients also have a higher chance of developing lymphoma.
What is World Sjögren's Day?
World Sjögren’s Day takes place annually on July 23. The Sjögren’s Foundation joins together with other Sjögren’s organizations from around the world to celebrate Dr. Henrik Sjögren’s birthday, the Swedish ophthalmologist who discovered the disease in 1933. This day not only commemorates Dr. Sjögren, but also helps to raise awareness for the disease.

How is Lubricity associated with the Sjögren's Foundation?
Lubricity Innovations is a proud supporter of the Sjögren’s Foundation. As dry mouth is one of the most common Sjögren’s symptoms, we have partnered with the Sjögren’s Foundation and Sjögren’s Society of Canada to help people overcome the uncomfortable feeling associated with dry mouth.
You can check out the Sjögren’s Strong Podcast, where we discuss the benefits of Lubricity Dry Mouth Oral Spray and how it works differently than other dry mouth products.
Clinical Study with Sjögren's Patients
Lubricity Innovations conducted a study including patients with Sjögren’s Syndrome, whose primary complaint was Xerostomia with an unstimulated salivary flow rate of <0.25ml/minute.
At the conclusion of the study, nearly 70% of participants reported that Lubricity was better compared to their usual dry mouth remedy.
Notably participants in the clinical study reported the following:
- Lubricity reduces the need to consume water to alleviate dry mouth
- Upon awakening in the morning, the oral cavity remains relatively moist after using Lubricity before bedtime
- Provided relief from symptoms of Xerostomia for up to 4-hours
- A cumulative improvement in oral lubrication/moistness occurred with Lubricity
