Study on the correlation of prevalence of ocular disease to different demographic variables, medical history and concomitant diseases.
Random blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides were analyzed by taking the blood sample from each patient. The average of the parameters was recorded, and the standard deviation (SD) was calculated. The parameters have been presented in the study as mean± SD. Blood sample analysis revealed that the average random blood glucose level (mg/dl) was 113.3±26.9 (Mean ±SD). The average cholesterol level was 189.35± 49.7 mg/dl, and the average triglycerides level was 124.25±50.0 mg/dl. Average systolic and diastolic blood pressure was found to be 126.0 ± 15.5 mmHg and 81.43 ± 8.0 mmHg, respectively. The patients were examined by the dermatologist. The dermatologists observed the signs, and the patients were asked about the presence of the symptoms to evaluate the severity of psoriasis and psoriatic arthropathy. The patients were asked about the duration for which they had been suffering from psoriasis. On average, a patient was found to be suffering from psoriasis for 11.4 ±9.9 years (the duration ranged from a minimum of 1 year to a maximum of 45 years). The doctor screened the patients for the number of sites involved and evaluated the severity of psoriasis via psoriasis area and severity index (PASI) score. Average Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) for the patients, as recorded by the dermatologists, was found to be 5.94 ± 6.8. The patients who have psoriasis were found to be under different treatment modalities. Figure 1 shows that the most used treatment approach was Methotrexate (MTX) (31%) and Topical formulations (31%). T he next one is Humira prescribed to 16% of patients. Cyclosporine were found to be recommended to D ijobet, Netigasone, 8%, 6%, and 4% of patients, respectively. Each of Enbrel, cream, and ointment was prescribed for 2% of patients separately.
