The Sjögren’s Syndrome is affecting more and more people. The good news is that science is moving forward and developing new ways of diagnosing and treating the disease.

The Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation is continuously involved in both these important aspects:

  1. Diagnosing
  2. Treating the illness

The difficulty in establishing a diagnosis of autoimmune diseases is a constant struggle in medicine. Their symptoms are very much alike, and sometimes these disorders may be mistaken for others for many years in a row.

Although this is an essential part of treating any disease, local doctors often underrate the importance of a correct diagnosis. This leads to years of pain and uncertainty for the patients.

The main steps in diagnosing the Sjögren’s Syndrome involve:

  • Specific blood tests
  • Eye tests
  • Biopsy
  • Imaging

Our Foundation considers that investing in discovering new ways of diagnosing this illness faster and easier. Wouldn’t it be great if people would find out what they are suffering from faster and start looking for cures to ease the pain, instead of spending years on searching for the right name of his condition?

Fortunately, we have supporters from all over the world donating in favor of our Foundation’s activity. Many of our contributors even take one hour emergency loans and give the obtained resources to relevant institutions.

Our activity is transparent and all of the reports are available to all our supports and website visitors.

Please feel free to contact us whenever a question regarding the Sjögren’s Syndrome occurs, or you only want to find out more about our Foundation’s breakthroughs.
