One of the most common yet underrecognized autoimmune and rheumatological disorders, Sjögren’s syndrome, affects more people than rheumatoid arthritis and lupus combined. A Body Out of Balance provides a comprehensive guide to a wide array of symptoms, traditional and complementary treatments, and invaluable coping methods, so patients may devise a personal treatment plan.
Cowritten by a woman living with the disease and by a physician who has treated Sjögren’s patients, this indispensable resource will enhance awareness and demystify this often misunderstood disorder.
