Customer Question

Top Expert ONLY for RESEARCH SCIENTIST.. not just a physician.
(and please no scammers like Rick, Phil, etc.)Must find solution to acne.It started in 7 or 8th grade; they said it would go away after my teens, but I get new breakouts every single day for the past 27 years. Face, neck, back, chest. I've done researching and tried many things, but can't find any way to make it stop.PLEASE HELP.I've tried just about all the chemical treatments, and so now very hesitant to that approach, since none of them worked and many of them caused very sever damage to my body; such as the strong systemic antibiotics and 16 years on accutane. Plus, the whole concept behind those approaches seem way off base. I don't take any medications currently.

Thank you for your reply.

What investigations have you done related to Insulin , Testosterone levels, DHT levels till date ?

Have you tried Zinc orally till date ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I stay away from sugar, caffeine, milk, chocolate, unhealthy oils, and artificial ingredients.
I've tried periods of taking 50mg zinc (TwinLabs) nightly for about 3-4 weeks.
I've had labs for Testosterone and I think DHT, but not sure about Insulin... would that have been included in the full labs done during hospital stays or major surgeries? Is there a symptom I'd notice if Insulin was off?
