People with psoriasis are more likely to have heart problems

People with psoriasis are more likely to have heart problems

A study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that people suffering from psoriasis should be more attentive to cardiovascular problems because they are more likely to have their arteries blocked. The study was conducted by researchers at the University of California, California, in the United States. The study analyzed data from 9,500 patients who underwent coronary angiography. Then, they were divided into two groups: one with psoriasis and one with no psoriasis. Examinations showed that 84% of patients with psoriasis had coronary artery disease, compared to 75% of patients without psoriasis. In addition, it was also found that the risk of having heart problems was greater for those who had psoriasis for longer. According to the researchers, the study did not determine a direct link between the disease and heart problems, but , yes, psoriasis patients should be more attentive to habits that favor such problems, such as smoking, not exercising, and having high cholesterol.

The results showed that patients with less than 50 years diagnosed with mild psoriasis were 50% more likely to suffer from cardiac arrhythmia and 97% more likely to have a stroke. Those with severe psoriasis were 198% more likely to have cardiac arrhythmias and 180% more likely to have a stroke. The risks in people over 50 were far less significant.

According to the scientists, a possible cause for the alarming numbers would be the fact that inflammations of skin and blood vessels have similar sources of origin. of the skin are replaced every three or four weeks, but in people with psoriasis, the process occurs much more quickly. The substitution in patients with the disease occurs between two and six days, which makes the skin reddish, stained and full of barks.
