| ||A major risk factor for developing Sj÷gren's is being a postmenopausal woman. It occurs less commonly in younger women, children and men of any age. Other risk factors include having: an autoimmune disease, such as lupus, vasculitis, thyroid disease or scleroderma and/or a family member with Sj÷gren's.|
