Daily Diet Attentions For Vitiligo Patients

diet attentions for vitiligo patientsVitiligo is a chronic depigmentation skin disease, vitiligo patients should pay special attention to it in their daily life. Diet restrictions are quite important for vitiligo patients. There are several diet attentions I’d like to introduce to vitiligo patients.

1. Avoid eating spicy and pungent foods.

Avoid intake wines, peppers, garlic, mutton, fishes and shrimps. These foods are stimulating foods, might induce or worsen vitiligo.

2. Vitiligo patients should avoid eating too much foods rich in vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a reducing agent, it can reduce the formed melanin into colorless substances. Fruits like oranges, citrus, grapefruits, kiwifruits, tomatoes, hawthorns, waxberries and etc rich in vitamin C, vitiligo patients should avoid eating these foods.

3. Vitiligo patients should eat more foods contains contains trace elements.

Doctors found the blood and vitiligo sites of vitiligo patients lack of some trace elements and decrease the tyrosinase activity in their body and influence their melanin synthesis and metabolism and finally induce vitiligo. So vitiligo patients should eat more foods rich in copper, zinc, iron to increase the tyrosinase activity and accelerate the melanin synthesis.

4. Vitiligo patients should eat more foods rich in tyrosine and mineral substances such as lean meat, animal livers, eggs, milk products, vegetables, beans and etc.

5. Vitiligo patients should avoid over exposure to the sunlight after perspire profusely. Vitiligo patients should avoid long term live in damp environments, keep a stable mind state and balance their work and rest, keep a good life habits.

Although health cares and diets plays a great role in vitiligo treatment process, all these are not medicines and treatments, vitiligo patients should go to the hospital to diagnose their vitiligo carefully and find out the true causes of vitiligo and make proper treatment, only daily health cares, diets and treatments combined together, their vitiligo have the chance to be cured.
