A recent study in the International Journal of Women’s Dermatology described the complex interplay of sex hormones in the pathways of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in pre- and postmenopausal women and how clinicians should be aware of the multiple factors of MetS.

MetS is made of up interconnected physiological, biochemical, clinical, and metabolic factors, and as such, a multidisciplinary approach is required to address the different factors of MetS linked to skin disease, including inflammatory conditions, such as psoriasis.
