Yes, if you look it up under John Hopkins especially you will see that sjogrens can lead to autoimmune hepatitis which in turn lead to primary biliary cirrhosis. Also, you can have lung problems which I had for years. It drys the organs.....not everyone....this is rare.....so don't think you have it. But it happens. I know, I rarely if ever drank, did drugs etc.....nevr smoked...just always worked...my problems are all primary sjogrens.....and then the other.
