The only blood test that is abnormal is my vit D which is clinically low at 9 nn/mg on 25-d.
The things I haven't tried yet are digestive things such as betaine and digestive enzymes.

How low carb?
What exactly did you eat on Paleo?
I've done low carb paleo and high carb paleo. Low carb was the obvious stuff that you read at marksdailyapple.com. It was a while ago and remembered that I got cardiac problems following that diet.

You still haven't answered my question. Can you make a list of things you ate on Paleo, without really excluding anything?
It's a highly restrictive diet, so I'd assume you could list the ingredients.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
