Diet Restrictions For Vitiligo Patients

diet restrictions for vitiligo patientsWhen mentioned about vitiligo, I think every one have certain knowledge about it. The vitiligo can seriously damage the patient’s appearance. So when the vitiligo patients have that symptoms, they should face it optimistically and adopt the treatment for their vitiligo. The vitiligo patients also should pay attention to the foods they eat every day. Good diet habits and mental states can help control their vitiligo. In the following parts, I’d like to make a brief introduction about the diet restrictions for vitiligo patients.

1. Avoid drinking and smoking. Long term smoking can make people in the state of excitement, increase the nerve medium and catecholamine substances synthesis, these substances can consume large amount of tyrosine during the synthesis process. The tyrosine is one of the substances necessary for the melanin synthesis. If the nerve medium and catecholamine substances synthesis largely increase will lead to the relatively shortage of the tyrosine and finally cause the melanin synthesis decrease. Moreover, drinking will cause the micro circulation obstruction and also will decrease their autoimmunity, it is very adverse to their vitiligo treatment.

2. Eating less or avoid eating too much foods rich in vitamin C. Vitiligo is a antioxidant, it can inhibit the dopa further oxidized into dopachrome and make the synthesized dopa enzyme reduce into dopa and cause the melanin pigment can not synthesized. So the vitiligo patients should avoid eating or eating less foods rich in vitamin C such as green chilies, tomatoes, citrus, grapefruits, lemons, hawthorns, fresh dates, cherries, kiwifruits and etc.

3. Avoid eating or eating less spicy foods. Such as mutton, chilies, seafood, stimulating beverages and etc. Moreover, the spinach contains large amount of oxalate which easy make the vitiligo patients feel itch, they also should eat less. The spicy foods can stimulate the sebum secretion exuberantly, the sebum blocked in the pores and not easy to discharge which offer the chance to the bacteria and make them generate in the pores full of nutrients and finally induce inflammation.

4. Avoid eating or eating less seafood, fish and shrimp. Although seafood with high nutritional value, but it belongs to stimulating foods, which can cause the vitiligo relapse or worsen the vitiligo. So vitiligo patients should avoid eating too much seafood.

Vitiligo patients also should avoid ultraviolet ray, avoid long term exposure to the intense sunlight especially in hot summer. The ultraviolet ray in the sunlight can inhibit the melanin metabolism and adverse to the melanin synthesis.

Keep good mental state to treat vitiligo. The vitiligo patients should set up confidence, although vitiligo is a stubborn skin disease, the vitiligo patients insist treat their vitiligo scientifically, their vitiligo have great chance to be cured, so the vitiligo patients should face their vitiligo optimistically.
