Sleep quality of partners of psoriasis patients

The best independent predictors of sleep quality are having a child and having a partner affected by psoriasis prior to the start of the relationship.

These are the conclusions of a cross-sectional multicentre observational study of 84 subjects across 5 hospitals in Italy, Serbia, and Israel [1]. Using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) to rate sleep quality, half of the subjects identified as poor sleepers. Multivariate regression analysis showed that having a partner affected by psoriasis since before the relationship began, is a predictor of better sleep quality, while having a child is a predictor of worse sleep quality. Furthermore, having a child affected by psoriasis constitutes an additional risk factor for poor sleep quality.
