Is there a special diet for vitiligo?

We have specifically looked into claims that some food supplements or special diet may ease symptoms of vitiligo, or completely reverse it, and found no firm scientific evidence to support this theory. 

  • Common vitamin deficiencies in people with autoimmune conditions like vitiligo include folic acid, B-12, copper and zinc. However, vitiligo is not caused by a vitamin deficiency and therefore cannot be cured by vitamins alone. Vitamins can have an opposite effect: an excessive intake of Vitamin C can worsen vitiligo. 
  • While certain chemicals can induce or worsen vitiligo,  it is not caused by a toxin that can be removed from your system with 'detox' or 'cleansing.' 
  • Contrary to many beliefs, gluten-free diet has no effect on vitiligo and isn't very healthy, either.

I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
