I do have it, and I'm on the fence on the diet issue - I have cut out sugar and dairy, I do eat a lot of carbs though. I have never found that what I ate effected me much - but here's an experiment, last night I had some dairy & sugar - I guess I'll know soon enough if it effects me because I hadn't had it in months. My spiro is working wonders for me - the only thing other than accutane that has really helped. My skin has been just about completely clear for 2 weeks or so, straight through my period, which is miraculous. I still have some clogged pores & things to get rid of, but I have no active breakouts - & I'll keep my fingers crossed that last night's excursion into no-no land won't mess that up!
: I know that my acne is affected by eating too many sugars and refined foods. I don't think I have PCOS but I still try to avoid refined foods, and it helps my skin SOME. I won't be clear by not eating sugar, but better...
: Definately keep us posted on how it goes for you!
