Psoriatic arthritis | psoriasis linked to other medical conditions


Why do patients with psoriatic arthritis often
have other disease conditions like diabetes and hypertension? The answer coming up Protein in blood links psoriasis to other
metabolic conditions Heidi Splete writing in Rheumatology News
reported that the concentration of a protein known to be involved in insulin resistance
was significantly higher in serum of both lean and obese psoriasis patients, based on
data from 80 adults. The protein also is upregulated in psoriatic skin lesions, noted Dr. Sascha
Gerdes of the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel, Germany, and colleagues. Comment: This makes sense and probably means
doctors need to be on the lookout for other problems when they see a patient with psoriasis
or psoriatic arthritis.

    My mom has a decade-old psoriasis on her left arm; it has become a very large dark red patch. The redness and scales faded after almost two weeks of using psoriasis treatment solution “Κοkοzο Wuno” (Google it). Mother says there is NO itch and she is thrilled with the results.
