Acne in adolescents of developed countries is an epidemic skin disease and has currently been linked to the Western diet (WD). It is the intention of this viewpoint to discuss the possible impact of WD-mediated nutrient signalling in the pathogenesis of acne. High glycaemic load and dairy protein consumption both increase insulin/insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) signalling (IIS) that is superimposed on elevated IGF-1 signalling of puberty. The cell’s nutritional status is primarily sensed by the forkheaDiet
Potential role of FoxO1 and mTORC1 in the pathogenesis of Western diet-induced acne
HS Patient Stories
HS BOOK SERIES: “I WILL NOT HIDE” Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS)
Our series of book releases for #HSAWARENESS tell the stories of Hidradenitis Suppurativa (HS) patients in vivid and personal narrative. Told by the patients themselves.
“The results found for HS in our study showed greater QOL impairment than those found in some other dermatoses, including psoriasis,atopic dermatitis,acne vulgaris, alopecia, Darier disease, Hailey–Hailey disease, and even chronic urticaria. Wolkenstein et also noted a significantly greater HS impact on QoL than observed in chronic urticaria, atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis.”
