What Other Conditions Did You Get After Getting Vitiligo?

Do Most People With Vitiligo Have Hashimoto’s?

Do Most People With Vitiligo Have Hashimoto’s?

I was just diagnosed with V last week after having the pigmentation problem for a probably 5 or so years. Earlier this year, I requested a full thyroid panel because I was experiencing hypothyroid-esque symptoms. The only thing to come back abnormal (and it was very mild) was my T3. It was low. Therefore, they diagnosed me with Euthyroid Sick Syndrome. I’ve been taking 10mcg of Cytomel and have since felt better

Thank you,

Hair Dye?
