Sjögren’s syndrome: Does vitamin D play a role?

Posted on: October 10, 2013   by  Brant Cebulla


New research out of the journal Rheumatology International has found that people newly diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome are more likely to be deficient in vitamin D compared to those that suffer similar symptoms but don’t suffer from Sjögren’s syndrome.

Sjögren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disease. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to an assortment of autoimmune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (often just called lupus), antiphospholipid syndrome, type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis and systemic sclerosis. The degree to which vitamin D deficiency plays a causative or associative role in these diseases is not well understood at this time.
