Sjögren’s Antibodies (Anti-SS-A/Anti-SS-B)

Sjögren’s Antibodies (Anti-SS-A/Anti-SS-B)

Sjögren syndrome is an autoimmune disorder most commonly identified by two symptoms; dry eyes and dry mouth. People with this condition often have a feeling of sand or grit in the eyes, swollen salivary glands, difficulty swallowing and a decreased sense of taste.

Two common conditions associated with Sjögren syndrome are Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). People with Sjögren’s syndrome typically produce a variety of antibodies against their own body tissues. This test measures two such autoantibodies (IgG):

  • SS-A (Ro)
  • SS-B (La)

Fasting is not required. Take all medications as prescribed.
