Six diet tips to help with psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis
While dietary changes won’t cure psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis and their related conditions, for many people, eating certain foods — and avoiding others — can provide relief. Doctors are unsure of the connection, but “it appears that nutrition most likely has a role in psoriasis,” said Dr. Jennifer Adhout, a dermatologist with a private practice in Los Angeles. “We’re just unsure how much.”
Research into the connection is still in its early stages, but there are several theories, some clinical trials and anecdotal evidence from doctors and patients about foods that seem to temper or exacerbate symptoms of psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis and related comorbidities.
