VIDEO: What Should I Eat?

Our fall Patient Education Conference welcomed Registered Dietician Beth Doerfler. She answered your nutrition questions as they related to scleroderma, such as:

– Someone who I know that had scleroderma said that she is feeling much better on gluten free diet. Is there any scientific basis to it?
– Besides sugar, white carbs and saturated fats, what are foods to avoid and reduce inflammation?
– What supplements help gain energy? What are the best juices to fight inflammation? How does dairy effect digestive tract?
– What are the benefits of vegan and gluten free diet? What are the implications of low iron ferritin level?
– Why my child is not gaining weight even if she eats whatever she wants?
– What is the best way to obtain calcium if you are lactose intolerant?
– What is the best way for someone with scleroderma to lose weight?
– What are anti-inflammatory foods?

Beth Doerfler is also currently contributing to our blog series dedicated to managing nutrition and wellness with scleroderma. Check out her most recent blog post here!
