Rosacea Society offers update on comorbidities, directions of future research

November 15, 2017

The National Rosacea Society Expert Committee recently wrote an update discussing comorbidities of the disease, along with suggested directions for future research.

A higher prevalence of a number of gastrointestinal diseases have been associated with rosacea, including celiac and Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis, according to findings from Danish studies. The authors added that mortality risk from gastrointestinal disorders is also elevated in patients with rosacea, as is risk for inflammatory bowel disease. Another study showed that allergies may also be associated with rosacea, as may gastroesophageal reflux disease, metabolic disorders, urinary tract infections, hormone imbalances among women, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
