Can Sjogren's Cause Hair Loss? Exploring Autoimmune Disorders and Hair Health

Sjögren's syndrome is a chronic autoimmune disorder causing dryness. Its underlying inflammation may also impact hair and follicles over time.

Can Sjögren's cause hair loss?

Yes, the systemic inflammation and immune dysfunction associated with Sjögren's puts patients at higher risk for developing telogen effluvium hair shedding episodes.

Signs of Telogen Effluvium

Diffuse, non-scarring shedding noticed 2-3 months after periods of particularly high disease inflammation or flares.

Inflammation's Effects

Sjögren's inflammation signals hairs to prematurely enter their telogen resting phase, causing noticeable increased shedding until it resolves on its own.

Nutrient Deficiencies

Dry mouth impacts nutrient absorption, potentially causing deficiencies impacting hair health like vitamin deficiencies linked to shedding.

Stress Factor

Chronic illness' stress alone can induce temporary telogen effluvium. Managing Sjögren's related anxiety is important.

Most Likely Transient

With stable disease conditions, shedding usually abates on its own without long-term follicle miniaturization or scarring.

Prevention is Key

Disease management lowers risks, while haircare supports recovery from any effluvium episodes that do occur.
