PSORIASIS AND OBESITY – ANALYSIS OF A BAD FRIENDSHIP
Author: Krisztián Gáspár
There has been a common opinion that many patients suffering psoriasis are obese. Based upon this observation many questions can be raised. Is there a cause-effect relationship of the two conditions? What may be the link of these two diseases? What options in the management do we have in psoriasis patients with obesity? The author tries to unpack the topic by looking behind the scene and by looking for possible responses to the questions.
