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?
It’s been been said that 30% people with vitiligo have another auto Immune disease. Of that 30%, 20% is thyroid related.
I have hypothyroidism and b12 anemia Graves’ disease
I also have Hashimoto Disease and low Iron, I usually stick to non-gluten food and stay away from dairy. Its helped.
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 😔😔
