Health Issues As A Result From Having HS

Health Issues As A Result From Having HS

I was recently diagnosed with CVD. I learned my CVD is a result from having HS. I also learned HS can cause many other illnesses, as well as squamous cell carcinoma. Does anyone else have health issues as a result from HS?

Indeed it does help. Bless your heart honey I'm sorry. My doc said it's because there's more attention now being focused on hs. Doctors are now being told to check patients with hs for other autoimmune diseases.

Did your doctor put 2 and 2 together? I hope so for your sake. My doc said not a lot of doctors realize HS is an autoimmune disease and a lot of HS patients suffer unnecessarily because of it.
Apparently they're now understanding having HS could be an indication to having lupus.
