Sjogren’s Syndrome is an autoimmune condition characterized by its two primary symptoms - dry eye and dry mouth - and is often accompanied by other rheumatological conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). If you or a loved one is suffering from this condition, Attune Health has some tips for managing Sjogren’s: 1. Exercise! Fatigue is a common symptom of Sjogren’s Syndrome; although there are a number of factors contributing to its incidence in patients, there is only one strongly recommended therapeutic intervention: exercise. 2. Use artificial tears, an eye lubricant, or both. In order to relieve dry eye symptoms that accompany patients with Sjogren’s Syndrome, use artificial tears (in the form of eyedrops) and eye lubricants (in the form of eyedrop, gel, or ointment). 3. Increasing the indoor humidity and reducing exposure to air blowing in your face can prevent your eyes and mouth from getting uncomfortably dry. 4. Drink water! To reduce the discomfort associated with dry mouth, take steps to increase the amount of fluid, particularly water, you drink in a day. Note that coffee and alcohol will worsen these symptoms, and acidic beverages such as soda can harm the enamel of your teeth. #AttuneHealth #TipTuesday #Sjogrens #dryeye #drymouth #water #coffee #alcohol #exercise #fatigue #tears #management #medicine #health #selfcare #BeverlyHills #LosAngeles #patients #autoimmune #inflammatory #rheumatology #lupus #RA #rheumatoidarthritis
