Impacts of Inflammation

World Psoriasis Day 2023 - Ayesha lives with psoriasis

Inflammation is a normal part of your immune system, but those living with chronic diseases like psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis have an overactive immune system, which can lead to chronic inflammation throughout the body. This long-term, body-wide inflammation can increase your risk for other diseases such as heart disease. Request your free resources on the impact of inflammation to learn more about:

  • Ways to decrease inflammation – from treatment to diet
  • Systemic inflammation as a part of psoriatic disease
  • Related conditions (called comorbidities)

(An NPF Patient Navigator will respond to your request within approximately 3 business days.)
