Having psoriasis can increase your risk of developing the following conditions:
Psoriatic arthritis, a condition that can cause joint damage and loss of function in some joints.
Eye disorders, such as conjunctivitis, blepharitis, and uveitis.
Obesity is more common in people with psoriasis, though the link between the two is not known.
People with psoriasis are also more likely to gain weight because their psoriasis restricts their activity level.
Type 2 diabetes, a disease that’s characterized by high blood sugar, has a greater risk of occurring in those with moderate-to-severe psoriasis.
High blood pressure, or hypertension, occurs when the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries that the heart pumps remains high.
If this continuously happens it can lead to conditions, including coronary artery disease, heart failure, stroke and kidney failure.
