A recent meta-analysis showed an association between severe psoriasis and increased risk for both CKD and ESRD; mild psoriasis did not appear to increase this risk. The increased risk for CKD and ESRD was determined to be independent of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, hyperlipidemia, and use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, although those factors can contribute to renal impairment. Some studies have also found an increased risk for CKD in patients with moderate psoriasis.
