Sevi Rutgrink – Keto Coaching

Are those skin tags troubling you?

You have every reason to give those skin tags the side-eye, so that is why I always ask:

Do you have skin tags? For example, in the neck or groin, or under the armpits or breasts?

The answer is often ‘yes’ followed by ‘But they don’t bother me, I just don’t think they are very pretty’. Also often heard: ‘That’s what you get when you get older’.

Sometimes people say they have them removed by a dermatologist or beautician. Or they do it themselves, with vinegar, for instance, or a drugstore remedy. Occasionally, people say they use scissors, ouch!

Harmless but not innocent

It is true that skin tags in themselves are harmless. They are simply a benign disorder of the connective tissue. They are considered cosmetically unattractive, which is the main reason why people want to get rid of them. Sometimes they are also located in places where clothing rubs against them and this can also be a reason to remove them (or have them removed).

But what most people don’t know is that the presence of those skin tags, expecially when clustered, indicate insulin resistance. Those who start a keto lifestyle and become insulin sensitive soon notice that the skin tags ‘just disappear’. They literally fall off.

So it is important not to view skin tags as ‘Not so pretty but harmless’.

Insulin resistance is anything but harmless.

Insulin resistance is the precursor to type 2 diabetes.
