What Other Conditions Did You Get After Getting Vitiligo?

What Other Conditions Did You Get After Getting Vitiligo?

I’m wondering what other conditions people got after being diagnosed with vitiligo. Or before for that matter. I’ve seen some discussions of psoriasis. What other conditions did you get? Did they come before or after the vitiligo?

Eric,
It’s been been said that 30% people with vitiligo have another auto Immune disease. Of that 30%, 20% is thyroid related.

I had hyperthyroidism when I first started with Vitiligo. Doctors claim this is why I got vitiligo. After starting my treatment for hyperthyroidism I am now hypothyroid but no new spots have appeared since my treatment so I believe they were right with my diagnosis of my Vitiligo. I been on meds for hypothyroidism since. Its an every day struggle 😔😔
