Low Dose Accutane + Sexual Impotency?

16 September 2013 - 02:40 AM

Has anyone taken a low dose course of accutane (something like 20 mg 3x a week for a month to a month and a half) and have gotten sexual impotency??


Testosterone Levels / Impotency / Acne

16 September 2013 - 01:44 AM

I was wondering if testosterone directly correlates to impotency (in men) and acne levels in men? I.E. if one has high testosterone... does that mean they are highly unlikely to be impotent and higher chance of acne?

 

Does testosterone even matter when it comes to sexual potency and acne?


Zinc Test

11 September 2013 - 01:13 PM

So I recently had a zinc blood test performed to see what my zinc levels are (Kaiser permanente performed it)

 

These are the results:

Component Standard Range Your Value ZINC 50 - 110 mcg/dL

64

 

 

 

I know it is between the standard range, but is this enough zinc or do I need more?


I Know What Keeps My Clear...

03 September 2013 - 04:20 PM

Hey guys, I have finally figured out the foods that I can consume that keep my 90% clear. The problem for me is that there are times where I cannot follow my exact diet and I end up breaking out. Gotta find a way around this... anyways, the following is what I have found that keeps my clear:

 

1) Complete avoidance of dietary lectins. That means no grains of any kind, most dairy products are forbidden (will explain more on this later), no nightshades, no nuts that contain skin (such as walnuts or almonds), and obviously no junk-food or processed food. Here is some information on what are lectins: http://www.marksdail...le.com/lectins/

 

2) The following are the foods that I eat: leafy greens, fruits (usually one or 2 pieces of fruit a day... more than that causes breakouts), Grass fed AND finished meats, wild caught fishes (MUST BE WILD CAUGHT ONLY), healthy fats (extremely important) such as avocados, olive oil, coconut oil, grass fed butter (not sure if this causes acne to me, still trying to figure it out), macadamia nuts and thats about it. 

 

Regarding the dairy, I have noticed that dairy from european countries does not seem to give me AS much problem as american dairy... probably because american cows produce lectins while european cows do not (european cows are also grass fed while american cows are not). I have tried goat milk... I mean I still get acne so I am not sure if goat milk is the cause of it, but my acne is way better once following this diet (like I said, 90% clear). Yogurt no matter what gives me acne and same with whey protein. Hard cheeses however do not seem to bother me at all.

 

Regarding sweet potatoes... I do eat them at random times and I am still uncertain if they cause me acne. I think ideally avoiding all carbs except leafy greens and some fruits is the way to go.

 

If I was a perfect individual I would follow this diet everyday... but I am not perfect and there are times where I cheat and bam the acne reappears. 

 

I highly recommend EVERYONE to give this diet a shot. I can almost guarantee you that your acne will clear SIGNIFICANTLY on this diet.

 

 

 

P.S. regarding fruits... some fruits give people cystic acne, i.e. oranges or bananas. I guess the only way to be certain is to try that fruit and see the result.

 


Dieting Can Cause One To Scar

27 August 2013 - 03:03 PM

It seems that diet can cause acne to scar. I noticed that ever since I have gone paleo, my pimples have gotten more noticeable indents vs the shallow ones I used to get.

 

I am not sure if this is due to restricting calories, or some deficiency. 

 

Just thought I would put that out there
