The main acne research program
Acne is an unpleasant, difficult-to-treat disease that can occur in children and adults, because due to earlier puberty, acne appears at a younger and younger age and the prevalence of acne is increasing among adults, especially women.
Acne is a chronic inflammation of the skin that damages the sebaceous gland complex and manifests itself in pimples on the skin of the face, chest, and back.
Sometimes, untreated acne can permanently damage the skin, leaving scars. In more severe cases, acne can be complicated by widespread deep nodules.
This is most often associated with hormonal changes and increased levels of the male hormone androgen (which promotes overactive sebaceous glands).
In addition, acne can be provoked by disorders of the digestive tract, allergic reactions, lack of vitamins, used cosmetics (those containing lanolin, squalene or sulfur) and, of course, stress.
Acne is also associated with a lack of Omega-3 and Omega-6 acids.
The influence of hormones on a woman's skin:
Estrogen - surges before ovulation. When it increases, the skin becomes elastic and tighter;
Progesterone - activates the activity of the sebaceous glands in the second part of the menstrual cycle, which causes all kinds of pimples;
Androgen (male hormone) is activated at the end of the last part of the menstrual cycle. Because of it, about 70 percent blackheads appear in women 2-7 days before menstruation.
The BASIC acne examination program consists of 17 tests: BKT, Glucose, ALT, AST, GGT, IgE, SHBG, Testosterone, P. Amylase, Lipase, Magnesium, Zinc, Vit D, B12, Folic acid, Ferritin, Helicobacter IgA antibody determination.
