I’ve been getting skin tags like crazy recently and I’m trying to figure out what’s going on.
I was low cal and low carb for a long time. Then did Ray Peat, but was still only eating around 1700 cal per day. Past 6 months or so I’ve been trying to eat for heat and tweaking things- but can’t quite get anything dialed in.
I started getting some skin tags when doing Ray Peat – but the last several months it seems like they’re really growing quickly. Do others suffer with this? Is this a necessary evil, like weight gain, until I fix my metabolism? I know skin tags are a sign of blood sugar problems- but does that mean I’m actually eating too much sugar? I feel good when I eat a lot of sugar and have trouble eating enough protein to balance it out (though I do still eat protein).
Also, if/when I do get things balanced out, do skin tags eventually go away, or am I stuck with the ones I’ve already grown?
