Are keloids a sodium related problem? - mic_mic16 - 03-08-2018 22:33

I’m wondering if keloid development has anything to do with sodium intake?

I know it can be related to hypertension.
What do you think?

I don't think it is related and here's why. But I do think diet plays an important roll in the progression of keloids. I've had keloids for over 20 years now and I've done all sorts of study on myself. All because the lack of support from the scientific community.

Just a little info on keloids, they are formed from excess collagen that your body produces. So it makes sense that a low collagen enhancing diet does help tremendously in subdue-ing keloid formations. However that is not all, the indians actually consume large amount of curcumin in order to regulate said collagen.

I've read that a guy actually managed to stop the growth of his keloids just from taking turmeric supplements which happens to contain high levels of curcumin in them. Article here

So I've actually started those supplements myself in hopes that they are able help curb the growth any more. I have a 10 inch keloid on my chest which gets infected fairly often. and 3 more on my back. it is really ruining my life.

So to answer your question simply, No sodium is unlikely to be related to keloids but diet in generally might . Hope that helps =)

How about sodium, and alcohol? I’m suspicious of the diet of the people with keloids. It doesn’t seem to be a completely random disease, there is some consistency to it. If it’s not the diet, I believe there is another underlying issue that has something to do with age. The growth seems to occur between certain ages, and it stops at certain ages, it varies from person to person. Scientists have discovered the different patterns in the locations, but it hasn’t evolved since then. Why does treatment work with some, and not others? Why are some keloids strong, and others weak and easily cured? There is an explanation to everything in life, (ie: cause and effect). So, if determine the cause, you find the the cure. It’s simple, and basic science.

I don't drink alcohol, it does rile up the keloids pretty badly
