It offers complete information about diagnosis (there are blood tests that can be used to help diagnose Sjogren's), and provides an extensive discussion of how Sjogren's affects the various organ systems of the body, including the kidneys, blood vessels, lungs, liver, pancreas, and brain. The book also discusses treatment options (such as moisture replacement therapy) and offers tips for daily living.

Showgrins: Women Who Walk on Water by Betty 
Collier.
The stories themselves are emotional roller coasters. 
As a reader, I felt the women's pain, their frustrations, 
their hopes and their determination to push against 
the pressure Sjogren's syndrome has put in their lives. 
Their inspiring stories are well-told by the author.
