Moreover, experts have also revealed that relative to the control population, patients with PsA and psoriasis had an increased prevalence of risk factors for osteoporosis and fracture, including diabetes, alcohol abuse, smoking, depression, antidepressant use, corticosteroids, methotrexate and cyclosporine.
