On Dr. Seibolds report it says many things, one which I can't find is Distal Occlusive Disease. The only thing that I can find which isn't the same wording is PAD or Peripheral Artery Disease.

Are they one in the same?

Hi Marsha,

Hmm...I've never heard of Distal Occlusive Disease, but I've found a few interesting links to Vascular Involvement, Distal Aortic Diameter and Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease and Aortoiliac Occlusive Disease. I do hope that they'll be helpful to you.

Thankfully I haven't experienced this myself so can't advise you but it's possible some of our other members may have first hand knowledge of this condition. :)

Thanks Jo those are also the things I found. Thankfully I see my scleroderma expert again in the middle of August I can ask him first hand, and when I find out I'll post it.
