The objective of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility and associations with short–term outcomes of a medical nutrition therapy (MNT) intervention in patients with systemic scleroderma (SSc). Individually tailored MNT can improve symptom burden and potentially ALH in patients with SSc involving the GI tract. This study underscores the clinical potential of multidisciplinary patient management and the need for larger nutrition intervention trials of longer duration in these patients.
