Obese children are more likely to develop psoriasis

Obese children are more likely to develop psoriasis

Kaiser Permanente Southern California's Department in the United States. Scientists also found that adolescents who have this inflammatory skin disease are more likely to have high blood cholesterol levels and continue gaining weight. Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease, chronic, non-contagious and still unknown cause , which affects approximately two million people in Brazil, according to data from the Association for Supporting People with Psoriasis. It is characterized by the appearance of pink or reddish lesions, covered with dry and whitish scales that usually appear on the elbows, knees and scalp, and can spread throughout the skin. The disease manifests itself after birth or late in the elderly, but the most common is to appear between the ages of 20 and 40.

In the study, 711,000 children from different California cities participated. Weight, body mass index, age and skin health of each were analyzed. Researchers found that young people who were overweight were about 40 percent more likely to get psoriasis. Chances are as high as 80 percent in children suffering from severe obesity. The study also showed that adolescents who suffer from this inflammatory disease have cholesterol levels up to 16% higher than people of the same age without the disease.

According to study leaders, the relationship between psoriasis and diseases in the cardiovascular system was already known in adults. This new finding shows how childhood obesity, which is already treated as an epidemic in the US, can increase the chances of psoriasis and, consequently, harm health in childhood and adolescence.

Beware of beer

Some habits may increase and even worsen cases of psoriasis. According to a Harvard Medical School study in the United States, women who drink beer often are more likely to develop psoriasis. The study looked at data from more than 82,000 women aged 27-44 years and their drinking habits for six years.

Researchers noted a 72% increase in the risk of psoriasis among women who drank more than an average of 2.3 beers per week compared to women who did not drink. For women who drank five glasses of beer a week, the risk was 130% higher. However, women who drank any amount of non-alcoholic beer, wine or distilled beverages did not present an increased risk of developing psoriasis.

Some non-alcoholic components of beer, which are not found in wine or distillates, may be related to the onset of psoriasis, according to experts. The study, published in the journal Archives of Dermatology, suggests that the cause of the increased risk of psoriasis may be gluten from barley used in brewing beer. According to the study, people with psoriasis may have a greater sensitivity to gluten.

Diagnostic Criteria These explosions may be of lesser severity - without injury or destruction - with a large frequency, at least two per week, or greater, and in this case, it is enough that an aggression occurs per year, so that this diagnosis is made. Another requirement to be able to say that someone has TEI is that the magnitude of the aggressiveness in the explosions is very disproportionate to the severity of the provocation.
