In brief: Sjogren's

Sjogren's is the most common of the (so called) connective tissue diseases in the lupus family.
Ucsd and scripp's cliic researches suggest on the basis of autoimmine blood tests run on blood donors, 1/300 may have it, although it is closer to 1/500. Variable in severity, it causes loss of water secretions in mouth, eyes, colon, even perspiration, with time. Associated with ss-a, b antibodies.
