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

  • Wikipedia long list with details and accepted/suspected labels
  • American Autoimmune Association very long list, click for details
  • AutoImmuneDiseaseList Description of each of 100+ diseases
    Examples: Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Celiac, IBD, Anklosing spondylitis, Crohn's Disease, Type I Diabetes,

Vitamin D Receptor category has the following

230 items 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

A poor VDR increases the risk of 45 health problems  click here for details

VDR at-home test $29 - results not easily understood in 2016
There are hints that you may have inherited a poor VDR
You can compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more of the following:

1) Vitamin D supplement
  Sun, Ultraviolet -B
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus to the cells
2) MagnesiumVitamin D in the blood
 AND to the cells
3) Omega-3 Vitamin D to the cells
4) Resveratrol Vitamin D to the cells
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 VDR
Costs less than 1 cent per day

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.
