Acne Might Be Linked With High-Sugar, High-Dairy Diets

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Young adults with moderate to severe acne reported consuming foods with a higher glycemic index and more sugar and dairy than those with little acne, in new research.

The findings have yet to be confirmed by controlled trials but the early results suggest that physicians might add a dietary change to their acne treatment prescriptions, researchers say.

"I would suggest the best approach is to look at each person as an individual, including an assessment of his or her usual dietary patterns. It is important for both the dietitian and dermatologist to work collaboratively to give the ultimate patient care," Jennifer Burris, a PhD candidate in nutrition at New York University in New York City, who was involved in the study, told Reuters Health by email.

"If appropriate, it would be acceptable to try a lower glycemic load diet or to remove dairy products in an attempt to help treat acne," Burris says.

She and her colleagues published their research online January 13 in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Their study included 248 volunteers age 18 to 25 years old. The participants reported on the severity of their acne, what they eat each day, and also which foods they thought might exacerbate their acne.

Those who said they have moderate to severe acne ate foods with a higher glycemic index. They had a mean GI of 51.8, compared to 49.6 for those with mild acne and 48.9 for those with no acne (p<0.001).

Those patients also reported consuming more sugar, 199 g/day, compared to 56.4 g/day for those without acne (p<0.001).

They drank more milk (0.7 vs 0.3 cups), and they ate more trans fats (9.6 vs 2.4 g/day) and more saturated fats (31 vs 15.6 g/day) (p<0.001).

Those with worse acne also reported eating less fish than those without acne: 0.2 vs 0.7 ounces (p<.002).

There were no differences in fruit and vegetable consumption.

"Patients often say that changes in their diet affect their acne. We've been hesitant to draw a direct link, but this study lends some support to the observations that patients already report to us," says Dr. Amy Derick, a clinical instructor in dermatology at Northwestern University in Chicago, who was not involved in the research. She is also medical director of Derick Dermatology in Barrington and Crystal Lake, both in Illinois.

Both Burris and Dr. Derick say more robust studies are needed, because in spite of these survey results, it is still not clear if diet can cause or even influence the severity of acne.

"The number of studies investigating diet and acne have increased over the last five to 10 years, but there are still many issues with study design that make it difficult to compare the studies or determine diet guidelines for patients with acne," Burris says.

Eh why are there people who doesnt get acne even when they eat chocolate all day?  I think genes pa din tsaka hormonal inbalance ang cause ng acne.  Tsaka hygiene na din.
