Does this sound like you? If so, you are not alone.

Many people like you suffer from severe dryness symptoms—especially dry eyes and dry mouth. But many people may not realize that these symptoms could be signs of a more serious medical condition, like Sjögren’s syndrome.

Although most people have never heard of it, Sjögren’s is the second most-common autoimmune disorder in the United States, affecting almost 4 million people. If left untreated, Sjögren’s symptoms can lead to serious health complications.

Today, it takes about 7 years from the onset of symptoms before a person is diagnosed with Sjögren’s. That is a long time to suffer from chronic dryness symptoms. It is also why the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation (SSF) is working with Daiichi Sankyo, Inc., to help people Defy the Dry™.

By educating people about Sjögren’s and encouraging them to talk with their doctors about their dryness symptoms, we hope to reduce the time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis by 50% in 5 years.
