Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 19, 2013
For many, obesity is more than just a weight issue, it is a severe, life threatening condition. Heart failure, diabetes, and other major life threatening ailments have been linked to being past "overweight", but should acne be added to the list? Probiotic Action, best known for its probiotic acne treatment, dishes the dirt on why the food you eat may not cause acne, but obesity from food may cause acne flare-ups.
A recent article from The Post Tribune features Dr.Robert Wallace explaining to a patient that acne and food still have no correlation, but leaves the link between obesity and acne up for discussion.
Last year MedIndia along with several other sources released a statement on a Norwegian study that explored the link between obesity in teenage girls, and acne. While the results claimed that obese patients were more likely to have acne, the team at Probiotic Action explains that while eating unhealthy food may not the direct cause, a lifestyle and physical state associated with obesity could be a major contributor.
Fernando Perez, a representative for Probiotic Action, points out that while many factors contribute to acne, stress on the body, as well as increased hormone levels are contributing factors to acne in men and women of all ages. Increased levels of hormones during puberty, coupled with the unsteady amounts of insulin many obese individuals suffer with, could be triggers for the body to produce excess oils, which, feed acne causing bacteria. While many non-obese individuals suffer form acne, those who are obese could see increased symptoms in comparison to their average weight peers.
