Psoriasis & Diabetes
« on: November 17, 2017, 03:57:03 AM »
I found an article which I thought may be of interest to some members. The full article/study is not available for free, so I've taken a web magazine release instead;

I have mentioned this before but I have both T2 diabetes and  Psoriasis.  I have always suspected that they are somehow linked but I don't know which came first or if one was the cause of the other.  I suspect that both are resulting from problems with the immune system but that is just a guess.  Doctors don't seem to have a good understanding of either condition either.  Diabetes they just prescribe some pill.   Psoriasis  the only thing I have ever been given was some kind of steroid ointment which is not a cure and you should not use for a prolonged time.

If doctors don't know any better, why not go with our own guesses ? Makes more sense as we know our own bodies much better.
