Psoriatic Arthritis | psoriatic arthritis other diseases


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 up-regulated 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.
