Diffuse scleroderma patients have a higher risk of kidney disease (also known as scleroderma renal crisis). Evidence shows that the renal blood vessels may suddenly constrict (known as the Raynaud’s phenomenon of the kidney).

This condition often appears as new systemic hypertension which may be asymptomatic. If this is the case, check your blood pressure regularly.

Throughout June, our resident blogger and scleroderma patient, Nicola Whitehill, posted daily information and facts about scleroderma to celebrate the Scleroderma Awareness Month.

See the post she dedicated to kidney/renal involvement in scleroderma.
