I just read the write up on hypochlorhydria, and am fascinated with the information I found there. I had gallbladder surgery 3 years ago, and ever since, have suffered from acne. I never had it as a teenager, so it has been a source of frustration, obviously, since I didn't know what might be causing it.I had seen a dermatologist, who only recommended topical medications and birth control pills, but both of these "remedies" had little to no impact on my condition. I'm encouraged by reading the article, because I recognize some of the other symptoms listed in myself, such as the being hungry all the time (carb cravings) and just not feeling quite right. I am going to try adding the betaine HCl supplement to my diet and see if that provides any resolution to my problem. I finally feel like I might have found the genuine root of the problem, so thank you, Dr. Kennedy!! Any ideas on why my gastroenterologist or dermatologist couldn't have made the connection between my gallbladder history and present problem with acne?

I am not sure there is a connection. Acne is caused by two things: excess testosterone and general toxicity. Detoxification is the cure for the latter problem. Poor digestion can surely contribute to toxicity. Dark Field microscopy can help with the diagnosis.
