  1. No. The diet in India is preventing people from developing diabetes or minimizing severity of diabetes. Diet can do the same in the U.S. But most in the medical community denies it. I wonder WHY most of the community denies it maybe diet plays a role, but it's not nearly as large as the genetic component. It also depends on whether you're talking about type 1 or type 2. It seems to be fairly well accepted that type 2 can be minimized by your diet and exercise, but type 1? How large of
  2. This conspiracy theory is as bad as the one suggesting that Princess Diana was killed by florists who wanted to sell more flowers. question for you from a money perspective: There are a number of drug companies out there who compete against each other for market share. If one company (company A) has the cure for cancer, the cure will be better than the drugs from other companies which are only somewhat effective in treating cancer. Therefore, if company A sells this drug, everyone will
  3. A. my skin's still rather sensitive (6 months afterwards), but very happy with the results
  4. I wouldn't worry too much yet. It took me like 100 days (I wish I could put out a smaller number :P) before I started to see good results from moderate/moderate-severe. It was torture in-between, but at the end, it was definitely worth it :D Remember to exercise regularly and eat well on accutane! I lost 10-15 pounds while I was on it since I just had no energy everyday, and I'm slowly gaining it all back now good luck :D
  5. Oil returning is normal -- I actually welcomed it back considering the alternative was lips so dry I could barely speak without lip balm some small bumps are normal...I'm 6 months past (from moderate/moderately-severe with some cystic) and I get the occasional whiteheads that go away fairly quickly (more when i'm stressed). Nothing really serious though!
  6. yep. They've been sloowly fading, but in the past 2-3 months, my redmarks have improved significantly. I've been using sunscreen (spf 30 oil-free non-clogging) whenever it's sunny outside, and I use a toner as well (which might actually make it more red )
  7. It looks a bit like mine (except my forehead is fine) I wouldn't get too worked up over it though, I see 3-5 people daily with the exact same thing, and although you do notice it, it's not that big of a deal (it falls to the back of your mind within a few seconds).
  8. what does the "breakout" mean? I came off accutane something like 2 months ago, and I get small pimples and whiteheads (and there was one cyst), but nothing nearly as bad as it was pre-accutane, so it was still a success (for now anyways) but yeah, I'm also quite a bit more oily than I was on accutane. I'm on this neostrata toner and clindamycin
  9. if diabetes from accutane is possible (i.e. accutane CAUSED it, not just a timing coincidence), then it would be VERY VERY rare. of all the things you should cosnider when taking accutane, developing type I diabetes should be very low on the list
  10. If you ate enough food for a week in a day, would you still get hungry the next 6 days? To be honest, I don't know the answer, but I would hazard a guess that the duration of the course could affect your results. For this type of question, go with whatever your derm perscribes rather than what the (non-MD) people on this forum say
  11. Make sure to put some lotion on it every day. I didn't, and ended up with cracked corners of the mouth for most of the course (nothing I tried was really effective in healing them)
  12. I'm not sure there's going to be that much of a difference taking it twice daily or once a day. regarding your dosage, mathyou above is right...alot of derms seem to prefer starting slow to avoid big side effects and a big IB. you'll probably get bumped up in a month or two.
