Arthritis At Home Episode 125 – Scleroderma and Raynaud’s phenomenon
In this episode of Arthritis At Home, we are sharing the #CRArthritis interview with Dr. Nancy Maltez, rheumatologist and Clinician Investigator at the Ottawa Hospital. Dr. Maltez gives a quick summary of what scleroderma is and how treatment is very individualized as it affects each person differently.
In addition, Dr. Maltez discusses the two types of Raynaud’s phenomenon – primary (not associated with any autoimmune disease) and secondary (secondary to another autoimmune disease, such as scleroderma and lupus).
