Celebrities With Sjogrens Syndrome: Venus Williams, Nina Rawls, Shannon Boxx

What is Sjogren’s Syndrome? How common is it? What are the clues that a person may have this condition? And who of our favorite famous people are living with the condition?

According to the NHS website (nhs.uk), Sjogren’s syndrome is an autoimmune disorder whereby a person’s immune system, instead of protecting the body from illness or infection, attacks said person’s glands that secrete fluid, such as the tear and saliva. This reduces “the production of tears and saliva, causing the main symptoms of Sjögren’s syndrome, which are dry eyes and dry mouth”.

Sjogren’s syndrome is the third most common rheumatic autoimmune disorder behind only rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus according to wikipedia. There is no definitive data on its prevalence but some reports state that the condition affects up to 3% of the population. According to the Sjogren Syndrome Foundation, as many as 4 million Americans are living with this disease.

Celebrities With Crohn’s Disease: 2015 List

Here’s a list of famous people or celebrities with Crohn’s disease. Check out what they are saying about how they were diagnosed, how they are living with the disease, and their hopes and plans for the future.

Sam Faiers, British celebrity (via Cosmopolitan Magazine): It sounds crazy to hear myself say this, but I absolutely embrace my Crohn’s disease. It has caused me agonising pain, made me cry, stopped me from eating, drinking and clubbing, and it has slimmed down my once curvy body. But it has also changed my life and it’s changed me. It’s been a rough journey, and it is most definitely not over, but now I can see that a lot of the changes are good.

(via express.co.uk): Since I have started speaking about it a lot of young girls have had tests and some of them have discovered they have Crohn’s and have caught it before a flare-up.
