Psoriasis Risks Are More Than Skin Deep

Author: DailyRx

I'm Gabe Garza with today's health news. If you’re familiar with psoriasis, you know that it’s more than just a rash—it’s a chronic autoimmune skin disease that can be debilitating. And now new research suggests a possible connection between psoriasis and other conditions. According to a press release issued by the JAMA Network Journals, a new study of Danish twins found a connection between psoriasis and type 2 diabetes, obesity and body mass index (BMI). The findings also suggested a possible genetic cause between psoriasis and obesity.

Psoriasis is a skin disease that speeds up the growth cycles of skin cells. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), psoriasis causes patches of thick red skin and silvery scales that mostly appear on the elbows, knees, back, scalp, face, palms and soles of feet. It is not contagious. Although the authors suggested that the connection between psoriasis and obesity is genetic, they said they can’t infer causation. Psoriasis could cause some people to live a more sedentary lifestyle which could contribute to obesity and diabetes. Visit dailyRx.com for more information.
