In brief: Yes, but....

Systemic sclerosis (ssc) can cause gastroparesis, although ssc is a rare disease.
Diabetes is a more common cause of gastroparesis. Also keep in mind that many medications can also effect gastric motility.

In brief: Yes.

Usually late in scleroderma.
People with autoimmune gastritis can have digestive issues (no stomach acid or mucous) that makes digestion more difficult. It is most common in diabetes ii.
