Nutrition and Psoriasis


Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the skin, joints, and also influences cardiovascular risk. While there are many effective pharmaceutical agents available to treat psoriasis, many patients are interested in the role of nutrition and diet on psoriasis. In this article, we review the evidence for the role of weight loss and different nutritionally based approaches for the treatment of psoriasis. Some of the topics covered include discussion of gluten-free diets, herbs, and fish oil supplementation.
