Just to let everyone know that my Rosacea is always so much better when im on a low sugar/carb diet (which is pretty much all the time now). No spots or flushing at all, and the areas of premanent/persistent redness are less prominant (though unfortunately still there). All of the holistic/natural approaches to combating Rosacea look at it as a disease of the digestive tract so it makes sense to consider this as part of a double pronged attack (i.e. - looking at the route cause as well as treating the symptom). Remember that the hypoglyceimic diet is only about cutting out simple carbs and not carbs totally (e.g. - brown rice instead of white rice).

First post on here and first post on this section!

I just wanted to recommend cutting sugar and refined carbs out of yr diet to help with the flushes.

I have been following a fairly strict hypogylcemic diet for a month and have found that my energy crashes have hugely improved and in turn the flushy feelings that went with theis fatigue, have improved.

I have recently completed an adrenal test with a private doctor, to check my DHEA and Cortisol levels are as they should be. I should get the results of this in the next few weeks. In the meantime im going to carry on eating according to the plan and see if the improvement continues.

Hope this might help someone x

It really helps! Thanks for sharing this information!
