So you’ve finally got a diagnosis, and it’s time to get a Sjogren’s treatment that will make you feel better, or be cured, right? Unfortunately, there is no cure (I’m optimistically going to say “yet”). But, we do have options to lessen the impact and slow down the progression of tissue damage. Some people might even go into remission – they get a break from symptoms and hit “pause” on disease progress.
Here’s a thing about Sjogren’s Disease: There aren’t any approved medications specifically made to treat Sjogren’s. We have to use ones that were made for other rheumatic disorders like Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
BUT THERE IS HOPE! Companies that create products and new medications for Sjogren’s are stepping up to address the need. The best way to get some of those medications tested for safety and effectiveness and get them to patients is through Sjogren’s treatment clinical trials.
