Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute Exposes Link between Acne and Diet
Date:8/26/2013

Prescott, Arizona (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Acne vulgaris is the scientific name for common pimples. These form when the hair follicles become clogged with oil leading to blackheads, the precursor of acne. It is estimated that about 85% of teens have acne. Acne commonly forms on the face, neck, chest, back and shoulders and can occur in anyone; however, most experience acne throughout the teenage years. Acne can affect quality of life by causing low self esteem, social withdrawal, anxiety and depression. Scientists are also learning that acne is a precursor of diabetes and is due to the same underlying causes, namely a diet high in carbohydrates.

The glycemic index (GI) ranks carbohydrate rich foods by their potential to increase blood sugar. The higher glycemic index foods raise blood sugar levels higher and faster than foods with a lower glycemic index. Foods which are processed or contain sugar or white flour have a higher glycemic index including cereals, colas, fruit juice, bread and pasta. Repeatedly consuming these foods leads to insulin resistance. Increased oil production and blackhead formation by the skin has been linked to insulin resistance.

Excessive insulin levels can contribute to other diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and several cancers. A low glycemic diet reverses this process and improves acne symptoms as shown by multiple studies.

Robin Fleck, M.D., founder and medical director of Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute in Prescott, Arizona recommends the following advice to her patients with acne:
