Reclassification of PsA?

HobbleHobble Posts: 77
Hi, hope everyone is as well as possible


I was diagnosed with PsA last year and was recently told by a friend that there has been a reclassification of PsA and because of this many people are being taken off meds especially biolgics.
I was wondering if this is the case or just a random few under the impression there has been a reclassification as there have been some with other conditions such as ME.

Any info appreciated

    Dear Hobble

    Thank you for your forum post. I am putting this holding response on in response to your post.
    We have contacted our information department to see if they can provide more information about your questions involving possible reclassification. This will hopefully help us to provide you with an informed response.
    We will post a response as soon as we have further information.
    I hope this is helpful.
    Best Wishes

    Dear Hobble

    Our information officer has not found any mention of re-classification of Psoriatic arthritis in the literature. I wonder whether you are talking about patients who may have been re-assessed by their specialist which may have led to a change of diagnosis? I'm sorry if we've misunderstood.

    I wonder would you be able to ring us on our free phone at the Helpline, so we can get to the bottom of this.
    Our free phone is 0808 800 4050 9.30am - 5pm Mon - Fri.

    Kind regards
    Guy
