Is There a Link Between Weight and Psoriasis?

Read Transcript

When I get asked about the direct link about weight and psoriasis, to be honest, I'm not really sure that there is a study that shows a direct relationship. However, what we do know is that when the body is carrying extra weight, it's not just that is uncomfortable or awkward, what it is, a sign that the body, that everything isn't functioning optimally internally and when we have psoriasis, we know that too right, especially when the symptoms flare up.

So what I want to do is I want with psoriasis to help someone heal, I want to make sure that they are getting as healthy as possible, and in doing that, I am also going to help them come to and stay at a healthy weight. So it's all kind of part of the balance of remembering that all the pieces and parts of our body are connected and work together.
