The answer to that question is yes, indeed, these two diseases are related. You may ask how Diverticulitis and a skin disease such as psoriasis can possibly have any connection at all. After all, Diverticulitis is an internal condition and psoriasis affects the skin which is on the outside of the body.
Well, if you look a bit deeper, since Diverticulitis affects the digestive system, it has been proven that skin problems such as psoriasis stem from these as an external symptom that something is amiss in the body. IBS and constipation can also cause skin disorders like psoriasis.
Females, ages 50-59, are the most affected. They may also be diagnosed with Psoriatic arthropathy. There are medications for these skin diseases such as Enbrel.
Not knowing anything about drugs for these types of issues, I will not comment. I may look into Enbrel further, but that is yet to be decided.
Knowing is important for an elderly caregiver to show their clients that With Age Comes Respect yet once again! I will have to see if finding out this information will help any of my clients. It would be helpful to know, but all in good time. All in good time.
