Thanks for the responses. There's not a single food that causes my issues except dairy and I don't even eat it. I've eliminated a lot of foods for sooo long to see with no results....i am getting depressed cuz my diet's boring. @ CWR24 it lists it can raise blood sugar and that's pretty weird. My acne is not severe but is moderate and is extremely physically painful because it burns and is bright red. It's really weird acne. and the blackheads from hell. Quetzl did you take Accutane?
It can raise blood-sugar, but that is a very FAR cry from diabetes. In any case, that side-effect is rare, and temporary. I have read some pretty far-our horror stories from people who took accutane, and not one of them mentioned diabetes on the list of things they thought was caused by accutane. Unless you already have diabetes or some form of insulin resistance or sensitivity, that shouldn't be the main reason to not take accutane. Also, I've been on absorica (another brand of accutane) for over a month, and I haven't had any issues with fatigue.
On another note, if you haven't tried any other prescription care for your acne, I would at least try that first (i.e. topicals, retinoids, antibiotics, etc.). If you have cut out alot of things from your diet for a long time and you haven't seen any difference, then stop - it probably isn't necessary and may be causing more harm than good (malnutrition can cause acne too!).
