Something we frequently hear from patients is that while no one plans to get an autoimmune disease, there is some sense of relief when they finally get their Sjögren's diagnosis. After what might be years of uncertainty, they can finally put a name to their disease, and start taking the necessary steps to living a full life with Sjögren's.
Living with Sjögren's Patient Survey
The Living with Sjögren’s patient survey was conducted in the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of the Sjögren's Foundation. The research, conducted among 2,962 adults aged 18+ who reported having been diagnosed with Sjögren's by a medical professional or doctor, examined the variety and severity of experiences Sjögren's patients have with their disease and the impact it has on their quality of life.
