The ugly truth - psoriasis event with Janssen

Psoriasis patients live with the daily reality of hiding the ugly signs of their disease. But the truth is they may be hiding far more than you realise. Psoriasis can be linked with many associated diseases.

Cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), cancer, anxiety, depression, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are all found to be more prevalent in psoriasis patients.

When you consider that treatment for psoriasis may exacerbate comorbid conditions, and vice versa, the truth behind psoriasis is a lot more than just skin deep.

While living with psoriasis is challenging, you don't have to face it alone. Speak to your dermatologist about a treatment that will work for you and help you achieve clear skin. You can also join the #MoreThanSkinDeep Facebook Community, connect with people living with psoriasis who understand what you're going through, and access valuable information and insights as you navigate your life with psoriasis.
