Psoriasis, Liver, and the Gastrointestinal Tract

Celiac.com 04/12/2010 - A team of researchers recently set out to look at connections between psoriasis, the liver, and the gastrointestinal tract.

The team was made up of Paolo Gisondi, Micol Del Giglio, Alessandra Cozzi & Giampiero Girolomoni. They are associated with the Section of Dermatology and Venereology of the Department of Medicine, at the University of Verona, Italy.

Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory, immune-mediated skin disease that is often tied to other disorders, including psoriatic arthropathy, chronic inflammatory bowel diseases, and cardio-metabolic disorders.

Additionally, about 50% of all patients patients with psoriasis suffer from non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, from 0.2–4.3% suffer from celiac disease, and about one half of one percent suffer from Crohn's disease.

These associated conditions may have some common genetic traits, as well as common inflammatory pathways, and their presence offers important implications in the global approach to treating psoriasis.

In particular, common systemic antipsoriatic drugs might have a negative affect on associated cardio-metabolic conditions and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and may have important interactions with drugs commonly used to treat psoriasis.

Moreover, the team emphasizes the importance of encouraging psoriasis patients to drastically improve their modifiable cardiovascular and liver risk factors, especially obesity, alcohol and smoking intake, because improvements could have positive impact on both the psoriasis and the patient's general well-being.

Hi Matt, Thanks for taking the time to reply! I completely agree haha. Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over! I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when u...

Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensi...

It sounds like your hives resolved. I had a six month bout with them. Antihistamines really helped. My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.

My kid has Raynauds. It freaks her classmates out. She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state. It is autoimmune. She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws. I have Hashimoto?s and celiac disease. So, having multiple autoi...

Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten. Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc. Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon. Consider reading t...
