Abstract

Chronic inflammatory diseases such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and inflammatory bowel diseases have been reported to be associated with the development of metabolic syndrome (MetS), which is characterized by central obesity, elevated triglycerides (TG), reduced high-density lipoproteins (HDL), impaired fasting blood glucose (FBG), and hypertension. Beh double dagger et disease (BD) is a chronic, immuno-inflammatory disease with multisystemic involvement.
