Re: Beyond lip biopsies...


Thanks! Was a biopsy the only way to diagnose Sjogren Syndrome?
No, it's one of the various tests to try to establish the diagnose.

The Schirmer's_test is another one.

I am wondering if we have prolactin cells binding to our salivary glands. Do you know if the biopsy can show how much hormones are there? I do not think there is a saliva test for prolactin because the levels are usually too low in humans to pick up on test.

Sorry, I don't know. Too technical for my own knowledge.

Have a good day
