Sometimes this condition can be due to an endocrine disorder such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). Acne is also linked to excess hormone production such as androgens, growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), insulin and glucocorticoids.Androgens, hormonal mediators (including IGF-1) are found in dairy products and are best avoided during treatment. A low GI diet has also been researched and improvement observed in male patients.
Some studies recommended lower animal protein intake due to IGF-1 aspect in these products.
Supplementing with selenium and chromium for PCOS patients has decreased the severity of acne.
Zinc as well as lactoferrin also reduced the lesions in the treatment group.
