Dr. Kimball mentioned Hormonal Treatment for HS instead of Antibiotics. Would Hormonal Treatments be recommended for older ladies or for men?
I told my dermatologist I was terrified of the horrific side effects of Humira, so he put me on Spironolactone 100 mg which is helping tremendously
If the medical people can’t work it out with all this technology
Then the body can’t
It’s just doing what the doctors are doing in some many words 👍
You must keep well away from sugar
Quick question have you been tested for diabetes at all ?
If not get tested just incase as you could have it
And get some blood tested done ask the doctor to get these done for you it might shed some light on it few things 👍
I’d say yes- I’ve probably gone way overboard but I’m Stage 2 and have probably over researched but they’ve mentioned Metformin, Spironolactone, Humira, other biologics, any anti-androgen meds because women who suffer with HS like us tend to have PCOS, over production of androgens and testosterone, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance-
There was also mentioned about taking supplements like Vitamin B 12, Zinc, Turmeric, Vitamin D, Cinnamon on foods or drinks, cocoa, dark chocolate, avoid dairy if possible, foods that are processed
Avoid night shades, tomatoes, cheese, etc- so, basically all the foods that we love shouldn’t consumed!
This is frustrating! I mean I guess we can eat it once in awhile but talk about a change in lifestyle!
I’d appreciate anyone else’s feedback for things that have worked for y’all/ thanks
I saw a new PCP Lexi Martin here in Lake Charles yesterday- I brought tons of Med records, mentioned every health problem, including HS
She’s doing a ton of regular and added blood work- I see her again next month- she’s going to add Metformin, per my request-
I’m not a diabetic and do not want another health condition diagnosis
I have all the pre-disposed/genetic markers-
Past PCOS (before total hysterectomy), still metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance
She definitely agreed with me that HS, immune problems, choice of foods, etc, are all inner-related
What do you all think about Spironolactone? Would y’all recommend this or Metformin or both?
I appreciate everyone’s comments thus far- thanks to everyone in the group
