It's not always easy: Sjogren's syndorme can occur either by itself or in conjunction with other diseases like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. Even for a rheumatologist, it can sometimes be very difficult to make the most accurate diagnosis. The type and duration of symptoms as well as various laboratory studies are used in deciding what is the most appropriate diagnosis. Treatment for both problems may be similar.
