What is the life expectancy of Sjogren’s syndrome?

The condition is typically not life-threatening, but it can lead to other serious health problems and complications that can be life-threatening if not treated properly.
The life expectancy for people with Sjogren's syndrome is typically normal, however, it can depend on the individual case and the presence of any other associated illnesses. People with Sjogren's syndrome may have an increased risk of certain infections, dental problems, and lymphoma (a type of cancer) which can negatively impact their life expectancy.
It is important for people with Sjogren's syndrome to be closely monitored by a healthcare provider and treated for any complications that may arise. With proper management and treatment, the prognosis for most people with Sjogren's syndrome is good. Regular check-ups and follow-ups with a rheumatologist or specialized doctor are essential to monitor the disease and take preventive measures.
