    Smile adrenal hyperplasia (hyperandrogenism) and acne in men

    Where can I find a doctor who is knowledgable about and sympathetic

    to the relationship between adrenal hyperplasia (hyperandrogenism)

    and acne in men? I am a 32 year old male who took a full 6 month

    treatment of Accutane (40mgs per day) six years ago. My acne is

    coming back. I've always suspected that there was a link between

    excessive androgens and acne. I had my testosterone checked six

    years ago and it was high 857ng/dl, which was outside the normal

    range for testosterone levels that the lab used (425ng/dl -

    825ng/dl). To mitigate my acne problem which manifests itself

    mainly on my face, I maintain a very strict low sugar diet. I

    don't consume dairy products, alcohol, greasy fast food,

    non-organic meat or processed food. Based on 15 years of

    experience, all of these foods aggrevate my acne. Maintaining this

    strict diet does indeed help to reduce my acne flare-ups.

    Additionally, and I know that this is still a controversial topic,

    but I have also observed that there is a link between ejaculation

    and acne flare-ups. I know that many guys will say that there is

    no such link, but, on the other hand, there are many guys who say

    that there is a relationship ejacualtion and acne. It's my belief

    that acne, in general, as well as food sensitivities, and the

    ejaculation-ance problem, are all due to excessive amounts of

    androgen. And could these problems be caused by congential adrenal

    hyperplasia (CAH)?

    If anyone has any insights or knows of a good doctor, please write


    If you want to read a great article about CAH and acne in men,
