Sjögrens syndrome can be difficult to identify because there is no single test which will confirm the diagnosis. Although nine out of ten Sjögrens patients are woman, signs and symptoms can vary significantly from person to person. The average age of diagnosis is late 40s, although it can occur in all age groups and in both men and women.
If you have a dry eye condition, Dr. Zdenek would suggest for you to take the Sjö diagnotic test. Sjö is a screening blood test which will detect Sjögrens syndrome in its early stages with more accurate results. Dr. Zdenek's research has lead him to incorporate the Sjö test in his practice to help with early detection of Sjögrens. Currently, the national average for accurate diagnosis is 4.7 years. Dr. Zdenek wants to help his patients detect and manage Sjögrens syptoms sooner and better. Early detection can help you effectively manage your symptoms.
