How dangerous is accutane. Does it really cause permanent joint damage and GI problems like IBS? Can side effects be permanent?

Worth the risk: The claimed link to inflammatory bowel disease -- which I thought was just bad studies -- was laid to rest by a meta-analysis in 2016; anyone still talking should know this. The arthritis is rare and we know little about it -- whether it's cause and effect is unsettled. Acne is a grave social and professional liability.

What causes food allergies? I keep developing food allergies, and my doctors have no explanations. I also have IBS-C. Is Leaky Gut a real disease? Could it be causing my problems? (all I eat is fiber)

What causes food allergies? I keep developing food allergies, and my doctors have no explanations. I also have IBS-C. Is Leaky Gut a real disease? Could it be causing my problems? (all I eat is fiber)

First, you need to: Make sure what you are experiencing are true allergies.
