Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.
Well having psoriasis does increase the risk of a person to develop other autoimmune diseases but it is not necessary that a person would develop these conditions as there are many patients with psoriasis who do not have any other autoimmune diseases.So you should not worry.
It depends upon genetic and environmental factors so it is difficult to determine the exact risk.
I hope this helps
Please do let me know if you have any questions.
Yes I have read it.
My point is that there is no doubt that these people are at increased risk of developing other autoimmune diseases but it is not for sure that they might develop these conditions.
In my practise I have seen so many patients with psoriasis who do not have SLE or celiac or sjogren's
There is an increased risk but it is not for sure to develop these conditions.It is highly probable that you would not develop any of these conditions.
You should not burden your mind with this.
