Does psoriasis mean liver damage?


No, psoriasis does not necessarily mean liver damage. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that results from an overactive immune system, causing inflammation and the rapid production of skin cells. While there is some evidence to suggest that there may be a link between psoriasis and liver disease, psoriasis itself does not cause liver damage. However, people with psoriasis may be at higher risk for developing certain liver conditions, such as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or liver fibrosis, especially if they have other risk factors like obesity, diabetes, or heavy alcohol use. It’s important for people with psoriasis to discuss their overall health and any concerns about liver function with their healthcare provider.
