So, while I was stumbling around the internet today trying to find a plastic surgeon who specializes in reconstructive surgery for HS patients, because well, you know...I ran across this in the FAQ section of a website.
"2. Is HS affected by diet?
Some suffering from HS have said a change in diet helps, and many have tried the Paleo diet. However, restricting certain foods may affect people in different ways. Keeping a food diary to learn what works for you might be the best way to determine certain foods trigger an outbreak or worsening of symptoms."
This is the first and only time I have ever seen or heard an MD, let alone a surgeon acknowledge that there in fact could be a connection between HS and diet. My DO was the first doctor that was even willing to listen to the idea. Has anyone else encountered an MD or surgeon, specifically one who specializes in HS, who has been open to even just the possibility that HS can be triggered by certain food groups? Just Curious.
