Sjogren's is typically diagnosed through a combination of blood tests, symptoms, and sometimes a lip biopsy. A positive ANA (Antinuclear Antibody) test can indicate an autoimmune disease like Sjogren's, but it is not definitive on its own. The SSA 60 test is more specific to Sjogren's and a high result could suggest this condition. Additionally, a high Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) indicates inflammation in the body, which is common in autoimmune diseases like Sjogren's. However, these tests alone are not enough for a diagnosis and should be interpreted by a healthcare professional in the context of your symptoms and other test results.
