Homeopathy Medicine for Sjogren’s Syndrome
In addition to these glands, Sjogren’s syndrome may also harm joints, lungs, thyroid gland, kidneys, skin, and liver. Salivary and lachrymal glands are responsible for producing saliva and tears, respectively. When these glands are destroyed, it results in xerostomia and xerophthalmia, which are dry mouth and eye conditions, respectively.

Causes of Sjogren’s Syndrome
Our immune system unintentionally attacks our own cells and tissues when we have Sjogren’s syndrome.
Certain genes increase a person’s risk of developing Sjogren’s syndrome, but it appears that a triggering mechanism, such as infection with a specific virus or strain of bacteria, is also necessary, according to scientists, who are unsure of why some people develop the disorder.
The glands that produce saliva and tears are the first areas of the body that our immune system attacks in Sjogren’s syndrome, but it can also harm other body parts, including:
People who have one or more of the following risk factors are more likely to develop Sjogren’s syndrome:
- Typically, people over the age of 40 are diagnosed with Sjogren’s syndrome.
- Sex-Sjogren’s syndrome affects women much more frequently than men.
- Rheumatic disease-A rheumatic illness like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis is frequently present in Sjogren’s syndrome patients.
Complication of Sjogren’s Syndrome
Our mouth and eyes are two of the most typical body parts affected by Sjogren’s syndrome.
- Dental cavities-When the mouth is dry, one is more likely to develop cavities because saliva helps shield the teeth from the bacteria that cause cavities.
- Yeast infections-A yeast infection of the mouth called oral thrush is much more common in people with Sjogren’s syndrome.
- Dry eyes can cause corneal damage, light sensitivity, and blurred vision.
Minor issues could have an impact on:
- **Lungs, kidneys, or liver-**Inflammation can result in kidney problems, hepatitis or cirrhosis in the liver, and pneumonia, bronchitis, or other issues with the lungs.
- Lymph nodes-Lymphoma is a rare form of lymph node cancer that can occur in Sjogren’s syndrome patients.
- In the hands and feet (peripheral neuropathy), one may experience numbness, tingling, and burning.
