Little is known in the medical community about Sjogrenís (show-grins) Syndrome-- the most prevalent autoimmune disorderó striking 2 to 4 million, mostly female Americans. Sufferers often spend years going from specialist to specialist before being properly diagnosed. This debilitating illness, in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks its own moisture producing glands, results in dry eyes and dry mouth, and dryness of the skin, nose, and vagina. It can also affect the kidneys, GI tract, blood vessels, lung, liver, pancreas, and the central nervous system.
