Former sufferer of Psoriasis for over 25 years now clear thanks to biological treatment!

Its 1 year since I was prescribed biological immunosuppressants and 9 months of being Psoriasis free. My specialist said that the drug has cured my autoimmune issues and that she only wants to see me every six months to check my bloods.

Well its now 4 weeks since my last dose of biologic immunosuppressants due to hand surgery and so far no sign of the psoriasis coming back - the effect it would seem is long lasting.

Just had the results back of a short synacthen test indicating that I should immediately stop taking hydro cortisone tablets as my adrenal function is no longer insufficient - this is the first time in 25 years I will be 100% steroid free!

Been seeing people advocating "Leaky Gut Theory" may I suggest that before you buy into this myth and the expensive & pointless associated treatments google leaky gut theory debunked and read the articles you will see!

Interesting time coming up. Having hand surgery on the 26th so will have to stop taking the biologic immuno-suppressant for a while - will be interesting to see how my skin responds!

After 25 years of being a scaly beast I have now been free from psoriasis for exactly 3 months due to biologics. Have to admit though I kinda miss having something to scratch and pick at! Old habits eh!

Took another shot of my biologic today - this will be my last post on the matter unless of course something goes wrong with my health or treatment. Oh yeah and since coming off steroids my hba1c levels have dropped from 95 to 43 another result!

Big day tomorrow 3 month appointment with the consultant dermatologist after starting Biological treatment - hope she is as impressed with the results as I am.

My little cat Mollie has been a part of my life for 15 years - today diagnosed with oral cancer going for her last sleep in morning - normally stress would destroy my skin - thanks to biologics I think it will cope, another big tick for the treatment

Another shot of my biologic yesterday still looking and feeling great!
17 Jan 18:09
Had my follow up appointment today for the biological treatment I have been having.I started the treatment with 36% of my body covered in plaque psoriasis and my nails were yellow and misformed. Today 0.1% a score and my nails are looking great!
05 Jan 20:23
I am feeling like I have flu like symptoms coming on - should be a good test of how my body copes with the biological immunosuppressants. As always will post about the outcome warts and all (well no warts I hope!!!)
05 Jan 17:22
Wow 200 folks following me I am humbled guys. Hope my posts are helping you all x

Another injection of biologics today - love this treatment - still totally clear and still grateful. Even the dark patches where the Psoriasis used to be are beginning to fade away. Feeling pretty good about all this right now xxx

Its injection day again and very happy I am too - met a friend last week who could not stop touching my arms and saying how wonderful my skin looked! Nice to have someone say something so nice about how my skin looked. Thanks Biologics x

After a total of exactly 5 treatments a of biological immunosuppressant I am happy to state that I am now 100% psoriasis free !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another week on and I will be taking my 4th dose of immunosuppressant on Friday. My Psoriasis continues to disappear and I only have a little bit on my legs left. I do have skin discolouration where the plaques were - been told this will go in time!
16 Nov 05:40
Another week on and I should be taking my third dose of immunosuppressant today once I have spoken to my nurse practitioner about my recent infection. Despite having being ill my Psoriasis continues to disappear and I would now say it is 75% gone.

Down side of immunosuppressants just driven home to me following a three day stay in Hospital for a minor infection that went wild - if you are on these drugs do not hesitate if you get sick - get help ASAP!

So this evening is the end of week 1 of my biological treatment following the loading dose and I have to say my Psoriasis is actually feeling less aggressive and I have not had to use steroid creams all week! Does two tomorrow.
