    I live with Scleroderma. If I knew nothing about the disease and listened to this podcast, I would still know nothing except that it has to do with collagen. I know by its very nature that a podcast is limited in content, but this falls far below the standard my physician husband and I have come to expect from the Mayo Clinic. The pale/blue/red description offered by your expert is a feature of Raynaud’s; it’s not the definition of Scleroderma. And since 90% of people experiencing Raynaud’s do NOT have Scleroderma, using this as a description is terribly misleading.
