Obesity and Psoriasis

Obesity can make psoriasis management difficult.

Do you have obesity as a comorbidity to your psoriasis?

How does it impact your experience managing psoriasis?

How do you address your obesity?

  1. I have obesity as a comorbidity to my psoriasis. The impact when it comes to treating the psoriasis is all the doctors want to focus on is the obesity issue not the psoriasis issue. It really hinders the treatment I should be getting. Vickie W., Team Member

    1. , that has to be extremely frustrating 😢 We've heard from so many people, both here and over in the https://psoriatic-arthritis.com/ community, who have experienced being brushed off or not given the attention they deserve due to their weight. It's awful really and I'm sorry you've had to experience this. Hugs! -Catherine, Community Moderator

  2. No; I do not think so! Not in my instance!!!

    1. Hi , welcome to the community and thank you so much for chiming in here. Obesity is not something that plays a part in my psoriasis journey either. It's interesting how different we all are. How is your psoriasis at the moment? Please feel welcome to reach out anytime you have questions or need support. Warm wishes, -Catherine, Community Moderator
