Low Carb and Psoriasis

I've been eating low carb-high protein diet since Jan and since then my psoriasis has really come back to haunt me... I've been breaking out like when I first got it

Does anyone know what would cause this?...I've looked up a few articles and it suggested to much protein

Anyone out there have this problem?

Thanks Alot
Dawn

When I did low carb back in 2000, I developed psoriasis. However, now I have switched from Splenda to erythritol when I use af sweetners, and have not had an issue. I have also cut back on protein, fat and calories.

I have never heard of 'too much protein' as a source for psoriasis--but it is known that food sensitivities can bring on episodes of psoriasis--e.g., eggs or dairy.

It may not even be something you're eating for the first time, but something that you are now eating more often or in larger amounts.

Although I've never had psoriasis, I've researched it a lot because my sister had a severe case of psoriasis that seemed intractable. In a standard physical, her PCP noted low Vit. D and prescribed OTC supplements. Her psoriasis cleared and never returned. It was amazing that there was such a simple remedy since she'd seen 3 dermatologists who had tried all sorts of treatments and medications without success.

I broke out all over my chest and thigh. I have never broken out before for any reason. I think it was either the protein or artificial sweeteners. I have started taking vitamin C and some other supplements and it seems to be a bit better. But not sure what caused it.

My husband had grapefruit size patches on both knees for aprox 15 years. Sometimes it was thick and cracked which was painful.
I read that Vit. D might help clear it up. He took 2 x 1000 iu a day, A few months later his skin was clear.
