According to the Scleroderma Foundation, here’s some scleroderma-related conditions you should look out for:
1 – Gastrointestinal Issues
Individuals living with systemic scleroderma may grow some irregularities from the mouth to the anal canal of the digestive system and gastrointestinal tract.
Also, thickening and fibrosis (or scarring) of the tissues may happen due to the overproduction of collagen that usually occurs in scleroderma patients.
All this combined can result in weakened muscles and lead to the abnormally slow movement of food (dysmotility) in the digestive process.
