Observation by Henry Lahore, Founder of VitaminDWiki

Increased risk of Vitiligo if:
Low Vitamin D in blood
Poor Vitamin D Receptor which restricts Vitamin D getting to skin cells
Increase intake of Vitamin D
Increase Sun/UVB
Increase VDR activation (see below)

Autoimmune category starts with

See also web: consensus that ~50 diseases are autoimmune, ~50 more are suspected:

Vitamin D Receptor category has the following

517 studies in Vitamin D Receptor category

Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problems
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells

See also: 47 studies in the Resveratrol category

It appears that 30% of the population have a poor VDR (40% of the Obese )
Several diseases protect themselves by deactivating the Vitamin D receptor. Example: Breast Cancer

The Vitamin D Receptor is associated with many health problems

Health problems include: Autoimmune (19 studies), Breast Cancer (22 studies), Colon Cancer (13 studies), Cardiovascular (23 studies), Cognition (16 studies), Diabetes (24 studies), Hypertension (9 studies), Infant (22 studies), Lupus (6 studies), Metabolic Syndrome (4 studies), Mortality (4 studies), Multiple Sclerosis (12 studies), Obesity (17 studies), Pregnancy (24 studies), Rheumatoid Arthritis (10 studies), TB (8 studies), VIRUS (36 studies),   Click here for details
Some health problems, such as Breast Cancer, Diabetes, and COVID protect themselves by reducing VDR activation

The risk of 48 diseases at least double with poor VDR as of Jan 2023  click here for details
Some health problem, such as Breast Cancer reduce the VDR

VDR at-home test $29 - results not easily understood in 2016
There are hints that you may have inherited a poor VDR

How to increase VDR activation

Compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more:

1) Vitamin D supplement  Sun
Ultraviolet -B
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus in the cells
2) MagnesiumVitamin D in the blood
 AND in the cells
3) Omega-3 Vitamin D in the cells
4) Resveratrol Vitamin D Receptor
5) Intense exercise Vitamin D Receptor
6) Get prescription for VDR activator
   paricalcitol, maxacalcitol?
Vitamin D Receptor
7) Quercetin (flavonoid) Vitamin D Receptor
8) Zinc is in the VDRVitamin D Receptor
9) BoronVitamin D Receptor ?,
10) Essential oils e.g. ginger, curcuminVitamin D Receptor
11) ProgesteroneVitamin D Receptor
12) Infrequent high concentration Vitamin D
Increases the concentration gradient
Vitamin D Receptor
13) Sulfroaphane and perhaps sulfurVitamin D Receptor
14) Butyrate especially gutVitamin D Receptor
15) BerberineVitamin D Receptor

Note: If you are not feeling enough benefit from Vitamin D, you might try increasing VDR activation. You might feel the benefit within days of adding one or more of the above

Far healthier and stronger at age 72 due to supplements Includes 6 supplements that help the VDR

Increased risk associated with a poor Vitamin D Receptor
   Note: Some diseases reduce VDR activation
those with a * are known to decrease activation

OBJECTIVES: To explore the relationship among the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms, serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels, and vitiligo.

Databases including PubMed, Cochrane Library, Ovid, Web of Science, CNKI, SinoMed, and Wanfang Data were systematically searched. The association was assessed using odds ratios (ORs), standard mean difference (SMD), and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). The statistical tests were performed using Review Manager 5.3.3.

We identified a total of 17 studies. The relationship between VDR gene polymorphisms (BsmI, ApaI, TaqI, and FokI), serum 25 (OH)D levels, and incidence of vitiligo was investigated. The results of this meta-analysis showed that the

  • dominant genetic model (CC+AC vs AA, P = .007, OR = 1.41, 95% CI = 1.10-1.80),
  • recessive genetic model (CC vs AC+AA, P = .01, OR = 4.10, 95% CI = 1.36-12.35), and
  • allelic contrast model (C vs A, P = .005, OR = 1.87, 95% CI = 1.21-2.90)
  • of VDR Apal locus increased the risk of vitiligo, and BsmI, TaqI, and FokI loci and the risk of vitiligo have no obvious correlation.

Serum 25 (OH)D deficiency was positively associated with the incidence of vitiligo (P < .0001, SMD = -0.94, 95% CI = -1.39, -0.48).

This meta-analysis revealed that VDR Apal polymorphism increased the susceptibility risk of vitiligo, and there is a positive correlation between serum 25 (OH)D deficiency and the incidence of vitiligo.
