The foods we eat affect our health in many ways, for better or for worse. When a person faces a potentially debilitating chronic disease such as scleroderma, in which fatigue, digestive difficulties and nutrient deficiencies are common, a high quality, nutritious diet must take center stage to enhance quality of life and successful management of symptoms. There is no specific scleroderma diet since symptoms and the severity of the disease vary so greatly in each person.
The Low FODMAP Diet is just one way to tackle irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The diet could be possibly used in those with similar symptoms arising from other digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease.
