Hello Dr. Cordain!
Just finished listening to your excellent lecture on Hyperinsulinemic Diseases, and I have one, simple question? If some one begins to correct metabolic syndrome by using the Paleo diet, could they see skin tags disappear? This seems to be happening with me?
Again Thanks for the informative and helpful lecture!
All the Best!
R. Francis Stevenson
Dr. Cordain’s Response:
Hi R. Francis,
Skin tags represent an external cutaneous manifestation of insulin resistance. A Paleo diet helps to reduce insulin resistance, so it is certainly possible that a contemporary Paleo diet via its therapeutic effect upon insulin metabolism could cause skin tags to disappear.
