Evaluation of Vitamin D Status, Selenium & CRP Level in Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease that is linked to a variety of medical issues.  It is caused by a mix of genetic predisposition and environmental circumstances, which cause immune system sensitivity.  The goal of this study is to determine the status of serum vitamin D, selenium, and CRP levels in psoriasis patients, as well as their relationship to disease severity. Materials and Methods: This hospital-based case-control study included 50 psoriasis cases and 47 healthy persons. Serum VD, selenium, and CRP levels, as well as general demographic data, were also measured. According to statistical analysis, VD levels are significantly lower in psoriasis (p 0.005). In terms of demographic characteristics, psoriasis patients were found to be more obese than controls. The serum levels of selenium and CRP were not substantially different between the two groups. Conclusion: Vitamin D insufficiency is highly linked to psoriasis, according to our findings. Vitamin D supplementation can aid in the treatment of psoriasis and the reduction of obesity. In our research, serum selenium and CRP levels were found to have minimal significance.
