I would like to write about who I am and why I have chosen to use accutane. I hope some people find information useful. My accutane treatment starts today, 5.03.12.
I am 33y.o. female, mixed race(asian/caucasian) with very white skin. I have suffered from acne since I was 12 and it got very bad when I got type 1 diabetes at the age of 16. I have tried so many treatments, there will be not enough space here to write about them; nothing ever worked. I have acne all over my face, often inside my nose, ears sometimes on my head. My diabetes is under control, not too bad but could be better (my HbA1C is 7.2). I do exercise regularly(swimming) and try to eat healthy(I do not eat meat, just fish, do not drink anything that has more than 8g of sugar in it, no dairy products in my diet as well) I do not drink alcohol and I do not smoke.
My weight is 65kg and I was given 30mg dosage for one month which will be reviewed in april.
I will be writing about the changes If I have any, so do check back:)
