@cindysummit Cindy, I would be curious to know where you read that information? Psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disease, for the most part. Here is what Mayo Clinic has to say about psoriasis: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/psoriasis/symptoms-causes/syc-20355840

Many of us with kidney concerns have autoimmune conditions, also, and in fact autoimmune issues can be the cause of our kidney problems, like it is in my case.

I found this link. I know someone who works at my local hospital library. She has given me a lot on CHrcc and I am waiting for more about a possible (using that term "possible" loosely) link between psoriasis and cancers, including kidney cancer.



Hello, did a little reading. Sorry to hear what you’re going through. It’s a struggle for all. I have all three types of kidney stones. Sodium phosphate, calcium and struvite. Struvite are prone to women that are prone to UTIs. Very uncommon for men to have these crystals. I’ve gone to many specialists on Long Island and in New York City I’ve been in four different hospitals in the last year and a half with seven surgeries. They told me I’m at the end now they use the term ECDK end stage kidney disorder. When a man has struvite kidney stones it’s proving to be fatal. And what I’m wondering is, are you experiencing a buildup of crystals in your kidneys as well?
