Lose weight to re­duce pso­ri­a­sis!

Health & Nutrition - - HEALTH FLASH -

If you have pso­ri­a­sis and are over­weight, los­ing weight may help re­duce symp­toms of this skin dis­ease. It has long been ob­served that pso­ri­a­sis is as­so­ci­ated with obe­sity and that in­creased weight gain tends to worsen the con­di­tion. Pso­ri­a­sis and obe­sity are both ac­com­pa­nied by low-grade sys­temic in­flam­ma­tion, and obe­si­tyre­lated pro-in­flam­ma­tory ef­fects may worsen the sever­ity of pso­ri­a­sis.
