                                  Years ago we often commented about the psychological pain of psoriasis and called it 

the "heartbreak"of psoriasis.  Well, today  I make it a point to tell my patients with psoriasis that recent research

shows an increase of cardiovascular problems including coronary artery disease,high blood pressure,and diabetes

especially in those with moderate to severe psoriasis.

                                  And,I urge them to get regular checkups with their health care practitioner to monitor for

these problems.
