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