Sj gren's (pronounced "show-grins") syndrome, the most common autoimmune disease after rheumatoid arthritis, can affect both sexes and all races and strike any age from children to the elderly. In Sj gren's Syndrome, the body's immune system attacks its own moisture-producing glands. This book, written by a woman who has Sj gren's, presents and evaluates a full range of treatment options, conventional and alternative, providing unbiased assessments of their possible benefits and side-effects. Author Sue Dyson discusses everything from how Sj gren's affects the body to exercise, pregnancy, and relationships.
This is a book I can thoroughly recommend. It... explores in great detail many of the issues which are not covered in often busy and hurried consultations with doctors, dentists and opticians. - Ian Griffiths, M.D., from the Foreword
