    Is Coffee A Rosacea Trigger?

    Thanks Vestpocket for your post on this subject and pointing out how tiny the population of only 24 people in the study was. Wouldn't it be a novel idea for a group of rosaceans to get together and fund their own research. For example, let's get 10,000 rosacea sufferers together in a non profit organization dedicated to find the cure for rosacea and each rosacean donates $1 to this non profit organization who when funds a rosacea double blind, placebo controlled, clinical study on a rosacea trigger, such as coffee, or for that matter, whatever the 10,000 rosacea sufferers deemed to be a clinical subject worth investigating. Certainly one of the RRDi MAC members might be interested in receiving $10,000 to conduct such a clinical study that rosaceans would like to fund rather than the current status quo studies being done now by the other two non profit rosacea organizations. As mentioned in the initial post, there is a difference between a flushing trigger and a rosacea flareup trigger. When you drink coffee (or for that matter ingest caffeine from green tea or whatever) after you flush, and eventually recover from the flush, does the flush exacerbate your rosacea seriously, or after the flush subsides, is your rosacea unchanged?
  5. Let's review what the good points of having a non profit organization for rosacea founded by rosacea sufferers for patient advocacy vs the other two non profits for rosacea founded by non rosacea sufferers (NRS, and the AARS). (1) The purpose of this non profit obviously isn't for personal profit since everyone who has had anything to do with the RRDi hasn't done it for money. All Volunteers. Compare that with the other two non profit organizations for rosacea (NRS, and the AARS) and follow the money. (2) There is a wealth of rosacea treatment data in the member forum in logical categories. The search feature can help you find what you are looking for. (3) Education grants. (3) The RRDi MAC is one of the Crown Jewels, since these medical and research professionals have some interest in rosacea and have graciously volunteered to have their name listed on our website and have agreed to answer questions and help guide the RRDi. (4) The affiliate shopping cart is an incredible source of over the counter treatments and publications related to treatment not only for rosacea, but also other skin conditions. You can review what research the NRS and the AARS have engaged in, and decide if you think these two non profit organizations funding for research is the way it should be done. Or if you think there should be improvement into what rosacea research needs to be done, think about this option: Reaching the goal of 10,000 rosacea sufferers becoming members of the RRDi. Each member contributes one dollar a year. The RRDi could sponsor their own unique rosacea research that rosacea sufferers want done and fund it themselves. Can you do that with the other two non profit organizations for rosacea? So think about all this and volunteer! Join the RRDi. Contact admin and let us know you want to volunteer.

    Baby You Can Drive My Gut

    "SCFA (short-chain fatty acids) molecules are a subset of fatty acids that are churned out by some types of gut microbes during the fermentation of fiber. They're associated with maintaining gut health and protecting against disease....And experiments recently showed that certain types of bacteria extracted from baby feces could promote the production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) in mice, and in a medium simulating the human gut...."Short-chain fatty acids are a key component of good gut health," lead study author Hariom Yadav, an assistant professor of molecular medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine, said in a statement....Fecal microbiota transplants (FMT), or "poop transplants," can treat a type of gut disorder with an infusion of diverse bacteria from a healthy digestive system, distilled from a donor's poop. This helps to correct imbalances of microbial diversity when the gut microbiome is dominated by the bacteria Clostridium difficile (C. diff), which can lead to serious gut disorders." "Previous studies have investigated the use of probiotics — those healthy gut bacteria — by testing their impact in guts already affected by disease, the researchers wrote in the study. For the new investigation, they wanted to see how a probiotic would impact SCFA production in a healthy gut. They chose to work with baby poop because infants' gut microbiomes are typically free from age-related diseases "such as diabetes and cancer," and because of the sheer abundance of infant feces at their disposal. ("Their poop is readily available," Yadav said.)" Will Baby Poop Bacteria Become the New Probiotic? By Mindy Weisberger, Senior Writer, Live Science "While the new study examined what happened to mice after they received the mixture — there hasn’t been a study on humans yet — Yadav says that 'we are also planning to put these probiotics in yogurt, kombucha, and several other mediums for human use.' ” Why Scientists Think Baby Poop Is a Medical Gold Mine Probiotics are the future, baby.

  9. A post at RF in the News Feeds > Other News Feeds > NRS - Common Connection Between Rosacea Dietary Triggers refers to post at the NRS Blog which discusses rosacea diet triggers with Dr. Rajani Katta, clinical assistant professor of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and the author of Glow: The Dermatologist's Guide to a Whole Foods Younger Skin Diet. Dr. Katta mentions the "gut and skin health" but "we need to do more research to determine what that connection is." She categorizes rosacea diet triggers into "four categories: cinnamaldehyde-related, capsaicin-related, heat-related and alcohol-related." Dr. Katta nor the NRS ever mention that sugar and carbohydrate are rosacea diet triggers which has been well established with anecdotal reports here at RF, just as valid as the anecdotal reports used by the NRS to establish the NRS diet trigger list which is based upon a survey of rosacea sufferers. Sugar and carbohydrate simply doesn't fit into the four categories proposed by Dr. Katta. Have you ever wondered by the NRS avoids listing sugar and carbohydrate as a rosacea diet trigger?
  10. David Pascoe wrote a post about how the United Kingdom Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a Drug Safety Interactive Drug Analysis Profile for the topical treatment Mirvaso, using the Yellow Card Scheme and also mentioned Rhofade (Oxymetazoline Hydrochloride). You can read the Interactive Drug Analysis Profile with the suspected Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) reported through the Yellow Card Scheme which include adverse side effects such as cardiac disorders, among many other reported symptoms from users. David also mentions a report that concludes that oxymetazoline may cause drug-induced valvulopathy, a heart disorder. [1] UK residents can now receive news updates from the MHRA and report side effects to medicines via the Yellow Card app. You will need to create a separate account on the app to report and download it from the Apple App Store, or Google Play Store. USA residents can report adverse effects using Mirvaso to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088 or www.fda.gov/medwatch or fill out an online report.
