If Acne Was Caused By Diet Why Would It Only Start At Puberty?

65 posts in this topic

Think about that for a minute. The acne is caused by diet claims are ludicrous. Acne is a hormonal disease with a strong genetic link (bad acne tends to run in families).

Stop with the conspiracies.

2 posts. No one smart ever said diet caused acne. Acne is caused by unblanced hormones food can infact agravate inflamation=/=acne and make it worse. Milk, cheese and meats high in fat wont hel. All filled with cheap hormones


If you have pitted scarring look into Subcision-Suction as well as microneeding. Check out my success

I don't know why I'm answering another one of these stupid posts that are made about five times a year but, here I go.

It doesn't cause acne, it affects neatly all of the factors that lead to acne. You'll find plenty of details on that if you were here to read, learn and discuss, rather than to troll.

It also affects your puberty. How traumatic/dramatic the changes are, how early it happens, etc.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ 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!

You did not simply ask a question. If you are merely wanting to discuss how diet affects acne, then chose some better words in which you don't call us ludicrous.

Also, btw, acne really isn't a hormonal disease. Your hormones just aggravate the problem. Its an inflammatory condition. Which is of course, also genetically influenced.

And You probably only think you eat healthy.

I said it was both hormonal and genetic.

I am quadriplegic so I am *placed* on a very healthy diet in order to keep my health in order specifically my bladder and bowels. I have a nutritionist and I follow the diet they prescribed for me. I have no movement from the shoulders down and am dependent on a ventilator to breathe so it's not like I can just go and open a bag of chips at will and blow my diet.

Yeah, I've seen what nutritionists think make up an adequate diet. In addition to the bad advice TV nutritionists give out, My mother spent months in a hospital recovering from a stroke and broken bone. They fed her crap. And was allowed more crap for snacks. It's a good thing I was there to at least supplement her diet with food that contained nutrients. I couldn't do much about all the refined carbs she was fed in her meals.

Nutritionists design our school lunches too. Also Crap. And look at their health as a result. What we call junk food isn't the only junk in our diets today. Many people eating what they think is a wholesome home cooked meal are eating empty calories and trans fats.

wow i actually wanted to ask the same exact question like a day ago! :0
what is in our bodies before puberty that allows it wont be inflammed then?
why do other ppl dont even get no acne during puberty?
the same goes with allergies and intolerances that are popular here, dont u have those from when ur born not appearing some random time at ur life?
when i was small could eat dairy, grains etc just fine somehow..only had somekinda alergy from oringes (but not allways either?), would break out everywhere, but those were not acne nd it wasnt just on face (like usually it is first and only place where acne starts)
now ill do diff crazy health cleanses and do clean diets, supplemetns etc etc and still break out like its nothing. max few days without new breakouts. but then again i was on bad diet and also will get good skin days. diet improves skin quality a bit i think but it seems so freaking useless for acne..

~my face will be the death of me~

acne: resistance is futile!

why would those immunity incidents result in acne? a weird little growths on ur most important part face? why not just get flu?
and why its even breaking out on face at all when body can produce acne on other body parts just as well? but the 1st thing it will screw up will be your precious face for what reason?
so why does body has no aesthetical sense or priority sense whatsoever?? ok there are immunity and diff damage repair systems, liver for toxins etc but doesnt this just seems like a major error??
and puberty is supposed to end altho idk when?
also its superweird, ur trying to grow up, to form, to get better, stronger, to get good looking but instead get fuked up in various ways....
nd wrong immune response...dont u just fix it, basically immunity, with just taking vitamins, garlic nd such?

I was not talking about "two-bit side of the road nutritionists" whatever that is. I was talking about the typical conventional nutritionist trained in our Universities and part of our conventional medical establishment that has given bad advice for decades and led us to become such a sickly culture that children get not only diseases that should only occur in the elderly (and really shouldn't occur then either) like type II diabetes, but diseases that didn't even used to exist like non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

The ones filling our hospitals and other healthcare facilities, schools, and government agencies, the medical & nutrition experts employed by the news media.

They seem determined to focus on the wrong problems and the wrong solutions. You might think it was a conspiracy to sell more drugs. Because they certainly are succeeding at that. The amount of drugs taken by the average person these days is incredible.

Acne is certainly not an IgE-driven allergy such as a peanut or egg allergy seen in childhood. But there are many other antibodies involved in immunity, and whole sections of the immune system that don't bother to use antibodies. There are even other types of hypersensitivity - types 1 through 4. It is conceivable that acne, which is without question a physical manifestation of an immune response, could in some cases be propagated by food antigens, even using one of our existing definitions of hypersensitivity.

Yes. It's not a IgE mediated response. Acne involves delayed type III response involving other antibodies or inflammatory responses. But unfortunately, the average doctor/allergist only cares about the immediate response IgE mediated reactions. As they can kill you.

However, I do not agree that our immune system is screwed up. At least not any more than most people (including clear skinned people who are also suffering from their crappy diets and lifestyles, they just don't get the symptom of acne because of a few genetic tendencies). Some of us might have a 'screwed up immune system', just like some of us might have PCOS, thyroid problems, digestive tract problems, the weak livers so many want to claim we have, etc.

And that would be why simply switching to as close to the diet and lifestyle habits humans should have isn't enough to clear them. They need to do a little more to focus on their particular health issues. Extra nutrients. Even better habits. Temporary healing diets, etc.

>>She thinks that oranges cause acne.

lockquote>

No. I know that oranges cause me to break out in cysts. And several other people have found the same. Citrus intolerance is quite common. And I have frequently commented that I don't consider it to be true acne.

Do you ever make a valid comment? Seri

Why does your diet make you such an unhappy person?

I'm going to take a shot In the dark and say it's because she may have an eating disorder. The fact that she said "everyone is unhealthy" and that "all nutritionists promote an unhealthy diet" , " everyone is going to get diabetes" demonstrates that healthy eating is an obsession for this woman and that nothing is "healthy enough". Sort of like how an anorexic can never be thin enough, this women can never eat healthy enough and is obsessed with attaining flawless nutrition.

There's a name for this type of eating disorder but I forget what it's called.

.. Also if acne was an immunological condition like some of you are saying why don't they just treat it with steroids? They don't, because it's not.

no derm considers acne an "inflammatory disease" it's considered hormonal and tends to be hereditary.

Meh I tried. Believe whatever you want.

You could try reading this article, since I know you will not take my word for it: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/448506

Dermatologists today were educated with principles decades now outdated. Recent research shows that acne is an outcome of immune dysfunction:

Isotretinoin normalized TLR2-mediated immune response: http://www.nature.com/jid/journal/v132/n9/abs/jid2012111a.html

Correlation between certain immune factors and acne severity: http://eng.med.wanfangdata.com.cn/PaperDetail.aspx?qkid=zhpf&qcode=zhpf201102017

Microcomedogenesis driven by immune factors: http://europepmc.org/abstract/MED/23986176

The information our medical practitioners have is from time to time outdated.
