    Sjögren’s syndrome can sometimes lead to complications. For example, your eyesight could be permanently damaged if the reduced tear production isn’t treated. Sjögren’s syndrome also increases your risk of developing non-Hodgkin lymphoma which is a cancer of the lymph glands. However, the chances are still low, at around 5%. Women with Sjögren’s syndrome have an increased risk of having children with a temporary “lupus” rash or heart abnormalities. Any pregnancy will be closely monitored for potential problems.
