I was told this by two doctors that Vitiligo is a fungus -I was also told by a dermatologist that is also associated and related to Hypo Thyroidism -Does anyone else have any information on this ? Are both Autoimmune issues too? Any feedback greatly appreciated
Every thing starts with your Gut So if you have Gut issues address those First(Leaky Gut Candid or Digestive issues)
What I have learned is that it is an auto-immune disease that affects different parts of the body. Generalized hits the whole body and segmental is one area of the body. It is also hereditary. I do not think is related to the Thyroid. I have not read anything about it being a fungus. Hope this helps.
There is a similar disease that is yeast related but it is not Vitiligo- Tinea Versicolor also has white patches - I was also researching Melanocytes and how to nourish them to produce more pigment - but only came across the normal antioxidant advise vitamins C etc…- I didn’t realize in India Vitiligo can impair a young woman from getting married - then once married if it appears is cause for divorce - that’s very archaic that something uncontrollable can have such devastating effects on families- very shallow thinking and sad - we have come along way and still need more progress
I was told since I have Hashimoto’s I had a predisposition to get vitiligo anyway. Kind of shocked since I’ve had Hashimoto’s for a long time and no one mentioned it but oh well guess my doctor didn’t say anything due to they weren’t sure it would happen so why bother. Who knows😒.
