Connective Tissue Disorders FAQs

Lupus is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues or organs – this can trick the immune system into attacking healthy connective tissues.

A mixed connective tissue disorder occurs when there is a combination of two or more types of connective tissue disorders.

Sjogren’s Syndrome is an autoimmune disease that causes dry eyes and mouth due to a lack of liquid called tears. It’s estimated that up to 4 million people worldwide have Sjogren’s. Women are more likely to be diagnosed with Sjogren’s, but it can affect anyone at any age. There is no cure for Sjogren’s, but treatment can help.
