This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and to investigate HRQoL and the prevalence of hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), obesity and dyslipidemia. In a cross‐sectional design, patients d iagnosed with plaque psoriasis answered an interview and standardized questionnaires (Dermatology Life Quality Index questionnaire [DLQI], 36‐Item Short Form Health Survey [SF‐36] and EuroQol Five‐Dimension Questionnaire Three‐Level version [EQ‐5D‐3L]). Physical examination and several t ests to assess desired outcomes were performed by a dermatologis...

The aim of this prospective study was to analyze comorbidities in patients with palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP). The current study comprised 63 consecutive patients with palmoplantar pustulosis. The control group consisted of 37 patients with psoriasis vulgaris (PSV). The study included a standardized anamnesis, a clinical examination, blood tests for thyroid hormones, as well as calcium, magnesium, antiendomysial antibody, and patch tests. Hypertension was observed in 28/63 (44.44%) patients with PPP. Eight (12.7%) had ischaemic heart disease, and 7/63 (11.11%) had type 2 diabetes mellitus. There was no statistically signif...

The metabolic syndrome —otherwise called syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, Reaven syndrome, and “the deadly quartet”—is the name given to the aggregate of clinical conditions comprising central and abdominal obesity, systemic hypertension, insulin resistance (or type 2 diabetes mellitus), and atherogenic dy slipidemia. It is a prothrombotic and proinflammatory state characterized by increased inflammatory cytokine activity. In addition to inflammatory dermatoses such as psoriasis, lichen planus, and hidradenitis suppurativa, metabolic syndrome is also commonly associated with accelerated athe...

Authors: Ellulu MS, Patimah I, Khaza'ai H, Rahmat A, Abed Y Abstract Obesity is the accumulation of abnormal or excessive fat that may interfere with the maintenance of an optimal state of health. The excess of macronutrients in the adipose tissues stimulates them to release inflammatory mediators such as tumor necrosis factor α and interleukin 6, and reduces production of adiponectin, predisposing to a pro-inflammatory state and oxidative stress. The increased level of interleukin 6 stimulates the liver to synthesize and secrete C-reactive protein. As a risk factor, inflammation is an imbedded mechanism of d...
