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.
Diabetes and Essential Thromboliciema
I have diffuse alopecia areata :( had no idea it was related until I finally saw a dermatologist. It came after vitiligo after a pretty stressful period. My vitiligo started spreading (after being stable for 10 years) alongside the alopecia.
I have hypothyroidism and b12 anemia Graves’ disease
I have been recently diagnosed with Lichen Sclerosis by my GYN. I have read that it is related to vitiligo. I had an appt. with my dr, but it was cancelled due to stay at home order, so still not sure of any correlation.
