High Cholesterol Linked to Psoriasis

84% of people with the inflammatory skin condition known as psoriasis have advanced heart disease –significantly higher than those without psoriasis, according to a study published in the American Journal of Cardiology.

In this study, researchers investigated markers of heart health –including cholesterol—on a group of 9,500 adults. They found that adults with prolonged bouts of psoriasis tended to have higher cholesterol levels and narrower arteries than those free of psoriasis. The scientists note that the inflammation caused by psoriasis may contribute to increased cholesterol production and damage to the heart’s arteries.
