A healthy diet does not cure scleroderma, but nutrition is essential for patients’ overall health.

In this video by the Scleroderma Foundation, listen to Dr. Janet Pope’s session during the 2015 Scleroderma Foundation National Patient Education Conference about “Scleroderma Symptom Management-Why, & What Can be Done?”.

“The workshop discusses itching, pain, gut problems, Raynaud Phenomenon, and other symptoms many people suffer with due to living with scleroderma. Practical solutions to the pain and other treatments are provided, as well as knowledge as to why these symptoms happen and how frequently they occur.”

According to the Scleroderma Foundation, while there is no proven cure for scleroderma, much can be done to prevent, minimize or alleviate its effects and symptoms.
