Sjogren's (SHOW-grins) syndrome is a disorder of your immune system identified by its two most common symptoms — dry eyes and a dry mouth.
The condition often accompanies other immune system disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
In Sjogren's syndrome, the mucous membranes and moisture-secreting glands of your eyes and mouth are usually affected first — resulting in decreased tears and saliva. Your immune system mistakenly attacks your body's own cells and tissues.
Scientists aren't certain why some people develop Sjogren's syndrome.
Certain genes put people at higher risk of the disorder, but it appears that a triggering mechanism — such as infection with a particular virus or strain of bacteria — is also necessary.
65-plussers die niet kunnen volgen of met 'oudere' leeftijdsgenoten willen praten, kunnen de "65-plus chatbox" nemen.Verder hebben we ook nog de Senioren Net "Trivia" boxen, dit is een spelletje waar je alleen of met anderen kan spelen, niét chatten.Gebruik de "starter" om te starten (trager tempo en de punten worden regelmatig terug op 0 gezet), "gevorderden" is voor de gevorderden en meer in competitie of kies "zonder punten" voor de trivia zonder competitie.Before going to the Maldives, the couple spent some time in Dubai.Robin captioned the photos with things like, “Someone please introduce me to whoever this is…” and “April Love and some guy she likes.” In one of the photos that April posted of herself sitting next to her shirtless boyfriend, she commented that she didn’t like the angle of the photo, but Robin wanted it posted because he looked ripped!
And Marshall has something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day.
