Sjöegren’s Syndrome is a chronic auto-immune disease in which white blood cells attack the glands that produce moisture. Dry eyes and dry mouth are some of the most common symptoms experienced during early stages of the disease.
The Sjö test, is a quick in-office, diagnostic blood test, that identifies specific markers to provide a definitive diagnosis. This test is administered by collecting a blood sample taken from the patient’s finger, similar to a blood glucose test, which is later sent to an outside lab for analysis.
The Sjö test is currently the only diagnostic test that identifies unique markers to Sjöegren’s Syndrome.
