  1. Proponents of vitamins can sometimes be a little overzealous with their claims. At my old job, I used to hear things like, "this will prevent male baldness," or "this will increase fat burn," or even "this will cure your acne!" If I were to believe every anecdote concerning vitamin successes, I would be popping a pill from every bottle in the vitamin aisle. So I'm trying to identify the vitamins and supplements that have been documented for their effect on acne. I am hoping some of you may a
  2. Background: F 23years I've never been on birth control, but am thinking of getting on it. Included in some of the reasons I want to be on it is hoping that it will help clear up my skin. I would be prescribed ocella, which is a generic form of yasmin. I've just been extremely hesitant to get on it due to the unknown factor of what would happen once I would decide to stop taking it. There's been people who after taking it for prolonged periods of time and stop acne flares up, etc, etc. If I d
  3. If you spent a while searching vitamins or supplements which can be helpful treating acne, you will see that almost every vitamin and supplement is recommended by someone. That is why it would be good to collect reliable studies of the connection between acne and vitamins/supplements in one thread. Therefore, if you have seen a good research, link or quote it here! Zinc in acne vulgaris: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/82356?dopt=Abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6155029?dopt=Abst
  4. Hey ya'll. I am just about finished with a one month course of 40mg daily. A few days ago I started noticing that my nice thick hair was shedding at a much faster rate. Hairs falling out on my desk, computer, in the bathroom, etc. I wasn't even aware that alopecia was a side effect of isotretinoin. No information in the medication insert, no info from my doctor, not even on the FDA website. I came here, and have read through many of these posts on this thread and so my scholarly curiosity was
  5. Check this out. http://www.kidsource.com/kidsource/content....acne.news.html Just wonder why does all these studies seems to contradicts to what our practical results are.
  6. This thread is to be used ONLY to post the links to clinical studies on Accutane. It is here as a resource for everyone in the forum. Linking to sites OTHER than clinical studies is not acceptable. Please post any questions or discussion topics elsewhere so that this thread does not get unnecessarily cluttered. ABSOLUTELY NO FLAMING WILL BE TOLERATED. Posts that do not follow these guidelines will be invis'd.
  7. Hello, sorry I am not sure should I post this here or other place, forgive me if I am wrong. I am considering to apply for PhD studies in Food and Nutritions in Western countries such as US, UK, Australia, Canada or New Zealand. Currently, I am having my last stage of Master by research study in the field of Electronics. Therefore, I am not familiar with the well known universities which specialize in the field related to food and nutrition. (I gain interest in this field while fighting for m
  8. I have been doing a lot of researching and reading medical studies .... one study showed success in 93% of the 618 people with cumulative doses as low as 65mg/kg ! has anyone else heard anything like this ? my family Dr said that 100-150 are the norms... I see on the board here most people say 120-150 Any thoughts? articles ?
  9. Hey all I'm going to a new derm in a couple of weeks and am really hoping to get on Spiro. Like the rest of you guys who have tried it, I've done what feels like everything short of Accutane and nothing has really helped significantly. My old derm wouldn't prescribe me Spiro, though, because she said it was only for those with PCOS or other thyroid-related issues. I know (or at least I *think* I know) that acne is an off-label use for the drug, so I was wondering if anyone could link me to so
  10. Its nice to know when we cite "verifed" research articles that this stuff happens all the time. lol The only big surprise here is that someone admited it... I wouldn't be surprised if this happens to vitamin/supplement studies too. Big Pharma researcher admits to faking dozens of research studies for Pfizer, Merck It's being called the largest research fraud in medical history. Dr. Scott Reuben, a former member of Pfizer's speakers' bureau, has agreed to plead guilty to faking dozens of re
  11. Hey i found a website where you can search all the clinical studies on acne currently in progress. Maybe some of you guys and girls on here would like to take part... http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT0013...ge=1&rank=1 Interesting how they are clearly starting to link diet to acne!
  12. I know a set of identical twins, 100% the same genetic makeup. One has pretty bad looking skin, while the other has 100% clear skin... I really can not pin point what is the difference. Simalarities: They both drink equal amounts of beer. Differences: Acne twin eats worse diet, smokes, and is generally not as healthy... I think the non acne twin goes to the gym a lot more as well. I dont think their skin washing regimens can be all that different. Maybe the acne twin washes his face a lot m
  13. I stumbled upon this huge post while reading on an anti-Accutane forum. It's very helpful I thought, so i'm copying it here in case it gets removed there. It ignores all of the rhettoric surrounding the drug and looks at the facts. It lists almost all the studies that have been done on Accutane to date. But it's missing some of the newer ones.. I added those at the bottom of each list. I'm considering starting Accutane soon, and I figure this might help convince the Derm that i've done the resea
  14. Hey Dan I can take your word for it when you say that 2.5% BP is just as effective as 10% but I wanted to read up on it. Do you know any sites with info on that?

    Skin Needling Studies

    Here is a link I found with needling studies: http://www.microneedle.com/clinical_data.html Can anyone recommend the best needling device and where it can be purchased? I noticed there are different length needles, medical grade is around 1-5 mm
  16. I found this http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...=ExternalSearch Doesn't give much info about each study but still interesting I think.
  17. iv been suffering from acne since i was 16 years old and after trying all the products such as benzoyl peroxide, sulfer soaps, silicilic acid ect, none worked over a long term period of time so i decided to look into my diet. i stumped upon several studies claiming that diet does not affect acne and i almost gave up but then i stumbled upon this ebook, dietary cure for acne and it listed a diet which would cure my acne.....i sed what have i got to lose? so i decided to give it a shot a month int

  19. Just wondering if anyone knows if there has been any studies done on the effects on plants?
  20. Labgirl - I am a researcher (social sciences - but I still am very data oriented!), so I like reading the studies posted here too. Do you know if there are any good studies on retinoids out there that were done independent of the drug companies (I would be particularly interested in Differin - as that is what I am using)? Almost every study I have found on Differin has been conducted by Galderma. I just can't get past the biases drug companies must have when they are evaluating the efficacy of t
  21. Does Stress Cause Acne? There has been a long debate about stress-related acne in health circles. Until a couple of years ago, the medical field was divided on the issue of whether stress causes acne, but recently there has been many clinical studies which show that stress can worsen acne. One such study was conducted by the Stanford University School of Medicine in 2002. Although it was a small study, involving just 22 students suffering from acne, the professors involved in the study conclus
  22. I came across this study this morning and thought it was really interesting. It isn't directly related to skin but I think it applies to us. "A new study conducted in sub-Saharan Africa found that bacteria living in the intestine are an underlying cause of childhood malnutrition, leading researchers to suggest that many infant deaths in the developing world could be prevented by simply altering microbial communities in the gut. The study, conducted in Malawi, was led by researchers from the

  24. Here are some links to clinical studies on the diet - hormones - acne connection. Many thanks to Rubbish for passing these along, complete with descriptions, and for suggesting that we create a pinned topic. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18496812 Low GL diet increased SHBG and increased IGF-1 and reduced free androgens and thus acne and sebum. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17448569 Similar to above. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17616769 Low GL diet and markers.
