Sjogren Syndrome

Here Are Dietary Tips That Would Help You Manage Sjogren Syndrome

Sjogren syndrome is an autoimmune disease characterized by dryness in the mouth and throat, eyes, skin, vagina, and other organs. This dryness may lead to irritation, soreness, and pain, and make you want to avoid food. This means you may have to make changes to your diet so that it is easier to eat and get proper nutrition.

This autoimmune disease most common in older women, though it can affect people of all ages. Autoimmune disorders cause your immune system to attack healthy parts of your body, mistaking them as threats. The disease causes your immune system to attack glands that produce tears and saliva. This affects your body’s ability to produce moisture. (1)

Sjögren’s syndrome is often linked to other autoimmune disorders, such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Functional Nutrition and Sjogren Syndrome

Similar to other diets I have recommended for my clients, the Sjogren Syndrome diet focuses on well-balanced meals rich with vegetables, lean proteins, and fruits. Other than increasing nutrients and healthy proteins in your diet, the Sjogren Syndrome diet reduces or eliminates foods that can cause inflammation or trigger allergic reactions. Combined with other tips I will recommend once you CONTACT me to discuss your unique case, a moderated diet can help to prevent or reduce dryness and inflammation from Sjogren Syndrome. (2)

Pursuing the Sjogren Syndrome diet or a similar anti-inflammatory diet means eliminating common trigger foods and allergens. Some foods to avoid include:

I observed that some foods affect people differently. Though I noticed that these foods can trigger inflammation and worsen Sjogren Syndrome symptoms, I had also had cases where some can be eaten in moderation. This specifically applies to some dairy products, such as yogurt and cheese. (3)

Here Are Some Diet Tips to Help Manage Sjogren’s Syndrome

With the fact that caffeinated drinks and alcohol can dry your mouth, I’ll advise you avoid them. I’ll also advice you avoid spices and acidic foods such as citrus, as these can irritate a dry, sore mouth. You should stay away from sugary foods that can contribute to rapid tooth decay, which is already increased by lower saliva production in Sjogren’s syndrome.

Have you considered modifying the texture of your food to help you swallow it more easily?

I will also recommend that you try to sip a drink while eating If possible. You could also use skimmed milk, broth, water, or melted margarine to soften your food. (4)

Vitamin consumption that exceeds the recommended dietary intake can be counterproductive and lead to poor absorption or metabolism of other nutrients. Before taking vitamins or supplements, I’ll advise you to CONTACT me to schedule a FREE 20-minute phone consultation.

Eating away from home during travel can be problematic, so I’ll advise you to carry some “emergency food”. Foods such as oatmeal, soy milk, and instant soup have a long shelf life, and you can easily pack these for traveling. You can also carry fresh bananas, cut vegetables, and tea bags. You could CONTACT me to discuss your unique case so ill recommend a list of foods that suit you best. (6)

How you cook your foods can also affect dry mouth symptoms. Here are some additional tips to make your meals more enjoyable:


The Sjögren’s syndrome diet, similar to the anti-inflammatory diet, eliminates or reduces foods known to trigger inflammation. I would like to clarify that this diet is not a cure for Sjögren’s syndrome, but it may help treat associated symptoms including dry mouth and dry eyes. They are foods rich in vitamins and nutrients that will create a balanced meal.

When you combine this with other recommendations I’ll give when you CONTACT me to schedule a FREE 20-minute phone consultation, the Sjögren’s syndrome diet can help provide a higher quality of life and optimal health. Prior to pursuing this diet, I will strongly recommend that you CONTACT me to discuss your expectations and options to ensure you receive the best support.
