DIET and Acne - The Truth Revealed (Finally!)

acne vulgarisFor years, the common belief, held by the medical establishment, was that diet had absolutely no effect on acne. Turns out, they were wrong.

Does diet affect acne?
YES.  In a 2009 systematic literature review of 21 observational studies and 6 clinical trials, the association between acne and diet was evaluated. Observational studies, including 2 large controlled prospective trials, reported that cow’s milk intake increased acne prevalence and severity. Furthermore , prospective studies, including randomized controlled trials, demonstrated a positive association between a high-glycemic diet, hormonal mediators, and acne risk. Based on these findings, there exists convincing data supporting the role that diets high in dairy products are associated with an increase in the risk for and severity of acne.  Recent findings also describe an association between a high-glycemic-index diet and longer acne duration.

Who does acne affect?
More than 17 million Americans suffer from acne vulgaris1. Approximately 80-90% of all adolescents experience some degree of acne2.  Adults are also affected. Acne has been associated with other clinically relevant issues, including depression3.
