SLE is 5.5-6.5 times more prevalent in women than men Sjogren's is also an Autoimmune disease characterized by lymphocytic infiltration of exocrine glands resulting in Xerostomia, Dry eyes and profound B cell hyperactivity. Females are more affected than males in this condition with a ratio (Female: Male) of 10-20: 1.
