Systemic Disease in Psoriasis
It is important to recognize that psoriatic patients are predisposed to a number of systemic conditions that can adversely impact their general health, including obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. These diverse problems have been lumped together in the term "metabolic syndrome." It is probably prudent for all psoriasis patients to be closely followed by their primary-care doctors as well as their skin specialist.
