Can Your Body Change In Terms Of Its Reaction Toward Food?
Since the end of puberty, my skin has been clear. I have never had any allergies toward any kinds of food. In the period of time when I was clear. I used to consume diary products, soy (and all other food that contain Lignans) - you name it, without any acne problems.
About half a year ago, I moved from the east coast to west coast. And I started breaking out. Granted my acne problems were probably due to sleep problems and stress, should I watch out for food that can potentially aggravate my acne problems?
I have eliminated diary products from my diet for the past three weeks, and my acne problems remain roughly the same.
Researchers in Germany say that acne is a risk indicator for metabolic disease. .I recently came across this research paper published late last year (2013), in a medical dermatology journal. It summarises the current research; which supports a strong link between the same Western Diet that causes acne as a teenager and increased body mass index, insulin resistance in later life. It suggests that acne is a long-term Risk Indicator of certain diseases: It does not suggest, however, that acne causes these diseases in later life. Instead, this research suggests that the Western diet, which plays a big role in the development of acne in early life, if left unchecked, the ongoing consumption of these same foods, would ultimately cause more serious diseases in the future.
The researchers suggest that acne is a visible indicator of an overactive metabolic state where the body is trying to respond and process an overload of calories; in particular sugar. The study concluded (and there is good evidence) that this overworked metabolic condition leads to serious long term conditions and diseases of metabolism such as overweight (increased BMI), obesity, arterial hypertension, insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and potentially Alzheimers disease, according to the researchers.
Yes. A couple weeks ago I suddenly developed some sort of reaction to bananas - whenever I eat them, they cause immense abdominal pain for several hours (no acne though). This comes after eating bananas somewhat regularly for years.
But there are many explanations for sudden onset of acne.
