diet attentions for children vitiligo patientsVitiligo is a very stubborn and chronic skin disease, this disease with longer treatment course and quite difficult to treat.

In this article, I’d like to make a brief introduction about the diet attentions for children vitiligo patients.

Vitamin C can decrease their serum copper or serum copper oxidase, if the children vitiligo patients intake too much vitamin C, it can decrease their tyrosinase activity and not good for the melanin formation. There already have some tests indicates the vitamin C can interrupt the melanin formation. So the vitamin C contents increase not good for the melanin formation and not good for the vitiligo recovery.

These foods rich in glutathione the vitiligo children should avoid intake too much such as onions, garlic, tomatoes, fishes, shrimps, mutton, peppers and etc.

The main source of tyrosine is from foods. If the formation of tyrosinase have the copper, zinc and other trace elements participation, the tyrosinase activity will increase. The children vitiligo patients should eat more animal livers, lean meat, eggs, beans, fresh vegetables and etc.
