Psoriasis found linked with diabetes and cardiovascular conditionA recent study has revealed that there is a link between psoriasis, atherosclerosis, and diabetes. This means that the affected patients could find it difficult to handle the daily chores of dealing with physical symptoms of psoriasis.

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition characterized by scaly, thick, and red plaques and leads to emotional stress and discomfort.

Dermatologist Michael David, MD, Dermatology Department at Rabin Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Israel, and his colleagues, observed a higher occurrence of diabetes and atherosclerosis in psoriasis patients compared to patients without psoriasis.
