Business Insight Tired of Psoriasis? Like many other immune system related chronic diseases, psoriasis will stay with you for your lifetime. You simply carry it in your human genetic design, whether it was inherited directly or mutated. The key is not to eliminate it, because you will not, but to learn how to control it. Controlling psoriasis depends on many different factors, which include your own dispositions and external conditions, like insurance and such. We will discuss them below, but I really want to stress that controlling it is possible and very probable, especially now, when we developed so many choices. Let's talk about external conditions first. We all know how complex our insurance system is. Having insurance is a great thing but using it properly and making sure it covers what we need is another issue. Unfortunately, many medical insurance plans are not up to date with medical science, and they continue their demands to prove medical necessity and show evidence that you used many other means and medications before we request some of the newer ones. Depending on how long you have suffered from active psoriasis, it might be easy because you truly used a ton of other treatments, or it might be more difficult because you do not want to use some other sub-optimal treatments knowing that there are better and safer ones. Regardless of the case, our team will assist you in this very cumbersome process, complicated, sometimes illogical and involving multiple companies, and difficult to understand. Our clinic has personnel educated specifically in working with various newer medications and the sponsors who provide them, and we will not hesitate to fight making sure you will get what is the best for you. As a matter of fact, the above processes, at least some of them, apply also to uninsured patients. The processes are a little different but there are ways of providing you with good meds even if you have no insurance. It just requires a lot of patience and working with us consistently. presented by Arlington Dermatology There are many reasons that determine which psoriasis medication is the best for you, the reasons that are coming from assessing your own health. Age, severity of psoriasis, other medical conditions, and personal preferences are among those most frequent determinators. The doctor will ask you many questions and will review your medical history and other medicine you take before a discussion about treatment can be started. Older patients, with multiple disorders, especially other immune related diseases cannot, for instance, use biologics. If you suffer from lupus or multiple sclerosis and you take medicines for them, you must avoid another immune related medication that otherwise would be great. You probably will do better combining light treatment (UVB) and some good topical medicine. On the other hand, if you are healthy or have some well controlled hypertension or diabetes, you might do great with some of the newest drugs that can make you clear and maintain your clear for years. It actually helps if you get on some of these medicines as they are all functioning as anti- inflammatory agents, which will help your diabetes or cardiac conditions. You may also work with us by participating in clinical trials. Being a part of that process not only allows you to learn a lot about your psoriasis, but it also is free and makes you a part of medical science. No matter where you might fit in with your case, do not wait. The longer your let psoriasis bother you, the more difficult the process of getting you healed will be.
