Metabolic syndrome is a significant predictor of these events.

Results: Metabolic syndrome was significantly increased in patients with psoriasis (p-value 0.028). The proportions of diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, and waist circumference were insignificantly elevated in psoriatic compared with healthy and non psoriatic skin diseases people (p-value 0.171, 0.172, 0.704, 0.267 and 0.672 respectively). Conclusion: The metabolic syndrome was a higher among individual with psoriasis, and strongly correlated with obesity, so patient should be advised to change their life style, and early screening and monitoring of metabolic syndrome and its components may be an important issue to reduce this negative consequences of psoriasis.
