Skin Tags

Hello Dr. Cordain!

Just finished listening to your excellent lecture on Hyperinsulinemic Diseases and I have one, simple question: If someone 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.

Cordially,

Loren Cordain, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus
