    I have sever plaque psoriasis and cirrhosis. I have been sober for 1yr. and 9 months.




    . The psoriasis cleared up on 98% of my body after 6 months
    of being sober. I was diagnosed with type two diabetes 8 months sober'


    I began taking insulin injections 4 times a day, two months later my
    psoriasis came back and now covers appx. 80% of my body.


    My dilemma is, begin taking Humira or not. My GI doctor says there are risks involved, and I would need to have blood drawn every two weeks to see how my liver is reacting Previous psoriasis treatments
    has been topicals and light therapy to no avail.


    Suggestions/comments?.
