Kim Kardashian has Psoriasis is now the hottest search on Google

Was wondering what people are searching for on Google Trends and found one trend which was on Fire( US Searches). Kim Kardashian has been diagnosed with psoriasis which is an incurable disease. The disease manifests itself as red flaky patches on the skin and  not life threatening. it is just a condition for which many treatments are available. It is incurable but can be controlled. On Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim was diagnosed with psoriasis.

It was first discovered by bloggers when the reality star stepped out on July 19th. Red spots were seen on her calves and pictures and photographs of the same began to circulate on the internet. The reality star says she is worried because she makes a living by showing skin and adding or loosing a pound makes headlines with the tabloids. Her mom also had the same at age 30 and it can be passed down genetically. 

This search on Google is listed as red hot and you can see why, with 5% of all searches coming from New York. The reality star can't do without her looks and a disease like this can cause some trouble although it is not really harmful.

  1. Psoriasis is no laughing matter. It is a serious autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It's painful and debilitating. It happens when a person's immune system goes haywire and overproduces skin cells. The skin cells pile up on the surface of the body and cause lesions that crack, itch terribly, burn and bleed. Psoriasis is not contagious.

    It's the most common autoimmune disease in the country, affecting up to 7.5 million Americans.

    Kim and others living with psoriasis are at greater-than-average risk for other serious health conditions associated with the disease - psoriasis increases risk for heart disease, heart attack, diabetes, stroke, obesity and depression. If that wasn't enough, up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis - which cause can debilitating joint pain.

    Kim and others with psoriasis need our support and understanding. They are living with a lifelong and very critical health issue.
