The Arthritis Dietitian: My Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjögren's Syndrome Story



I am very grateful for the awareness raised by thousands of Rheumatoid Arthritis warriors. There are many unknowns, but at least there is hope for therapies and treatments. What about another common autoimmune rheumatic condition that is often dismissed by health care providers called Sjögren's Syndrome? According to the Sjogren's Foundation, "Sjögren’s (“SHOW-grins”) is a systemic autoimmune disease that affects the entire body. Along with symptoms of extensive dryness, other serious complications include profound fatigue, chronic pain, major organ involvement, neuropathies, and lymphomas. This condition is often labelled as just dry eyes and dry mouth, the treatment is mostly about symptom management. At the end of this summer, Pfizer Canada provided me with the opportunity to share my Sjögren's story with the boys of Sickboy Podcast.
