Diet and breast Pain
Breast pain is a common, bothersome problem.
Diet can affect breast pain, especially your sugar metabolism and sugar control.
Many breast pain conditions are just due to fibrocystic disease, it is very rare for breast pain to be a sign of cancer.
Persistent breast pains are definitely a reason to see your gyno. and to get caught up on your mammograms.
Skin changes accompanied by breast pain is more serious. But if you have pain, skin changes, or lumpiness that your gyno has not been able to specifically diagnose or treat, you may have a rare breast condition.
Poor diet, including poor circulation, can cause pain.
Sugar and increased caffeine around the cycle may exaggerate pain you get in the premenstrual time.
Breast pain cause by infections that are not mastitis would include molluscum, actinomycosis, syphilis, or even tuberculosis. All these infections can cause pains or medical conditions in the underarm (also called axillary) areas as well as infections to individual breast sinuses
The disease scarcoidosis can cause breast problems, completely unrelated to diet.
Diabetic women can get a condition called diabetic 'mastopathy' the official word for breast disease. that is not written about very much. Diabetic mastopathy is mostly just reported in insulin dependent diabetics. This can be due to circulation or tissue changes that become painful over time. The treatment for this breast condition includes treatment of your diabetes.
For answers to other diabetic common questions see this link. It is not well established how often this occurs in those who are insulin resistant and not yet in full blown diabetes, but researchers are looking into this as well.
