Dietary Instructions For Vitiligo patients: 

There are a few instructions for patients regarding their diet to follow when suffering from vitiligo, especially about what they should avoid. Following are some of our observations based on our clinical experience of treating a large number of patients (clinical observations):

Avoid Sour Food:

Foods that are excessively sour should be avoided. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is known to inhibit the production of the melanin, the color pigment. Patients with vitiligo are suggested to refrain from eating citrus fruits, sour yogurt, sour pickles, and other sour foods.

The author of this write up is of the opinion is that the since the process of melanin formation calls for physiological pH, in the process where tyrosinase converts tyrosine to dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) and then to dopaquinone, intake of sour foods may work adversely, hence hampering the process of melanogenesis.

Do Not Eat Non-Vegetarian Food:

Non-vegetarian foods should be better avoided, as much as possible, as they act as a foreign body to the pigment cells. At Life Force, we have observed that certain fish leading to sudden aggravation of vitiligo in some patients. Also, it has been observed that industrial chemicals (such as mercury) could enter our body through seafood, especially fish; so it should better be avoided in your vitiligo diet.

Stay Away From Artificial Food Colors:

Artificial colors used in various food preparations may better be reduced or avoided as far as possible.

There may not be enough scientific evidence to prove how these foods worsen leucoderma (vitiligo), but our clinical experience has shown that many patients report worsening of their vitiligo after consuming these items and hence they are better avoided.

Avoid using creams/fruits containing hydroquinone:

It is very important to take care that foods comprising hydroquinone, which is a prominent depigmenting agent present in various skin bleaching creams, should be avoided when you are combating vitiligo. Certain fruits, such as blueberries and pears, contain hydroquinone which minimizes melanin production. So, make sure you do not add fruits, such as blueberries and pears, in your vitiligo diet as they may make your white skin patches whiter and aggravate the condition.

Have Food High In Zinc:

Increase your intake of foods, which are rich in zinc, when you are suffering from vitiligo. Increase in the levels of zinc in your body can help cure vitiligo to a great extent. So, make sure you include oysters, which is abundant in zinc, in your diet for vitiligo. Also, you can add nuts, beans, and dairy foods in your regular diet to boost the levels of zinc in your body.

Add Vitamin B-12 Rich Foods In Diet:

The consumption of vitamin B-12 rich foods is highly effective in reversing vitiligo. Various medical studies and researchers reveal that deficiency of vitamin B-12 tends to cause a boost in homocysteine, which is a compound responsible for the destruction of skin pigmentation in various parts of your body. So, you need to include vitamin B-12 rich foods in your regular diet for vitiligo. Make sure you eat fortified breakfast cereals, yogurt, and other vitamins B-12 abundant foods.

Eat Folate-Rich Foods:

Low folate levels in your body are known to be one of the prominent causes of vitiligo. By modifying your regular diet by adding some foods abundant in folate can help boost your intake of folate easily.  Make sure you have cereals rich in folate in your regular breakfast. Also, adding nutritious foods, such as spinach, broccoli, black-eyed peas, and asparagus, in your daily diet can help boost your folate levels and help in reversing vitiligo significantly.

Diet in Vitiligo:

Vitiligo is an auto-immune disease affecting various people of any age, sex, and constitution. There is a loss of normal skin color and the skin turn white when an individual suffers from vitiligo. There are some foods which are known to hinder the formation and production of melanocytes (pigment-forming cells). So, you need to avoid harmful foods and add healthy foods to your vitiligo diet. Here are some dos and don’ts that you should follow for a speedy recovery from vitiligo.

Do this

Avoid this

  • Include fresh fruits (not sour) and vegetables in your daily vitiligo diet.
  • Eat vegetarian foods as much as possible
  • Sour foods like lemons, oranges, tomatoes ketchup, pickles, raw mango, sour curd, over fermented foods, Chinese foods (or foods containing vinegar and soy sauces)
  • Get exposed to the early morning/ setting sun for 10-15 minutes daily. Use a good sunscreen if you step out in the sun between 10 am to 4 pm
  • Seafood, such as fish, prawns, crabs, lobsters, shrimps, needs to be completely avoided in your diet for vitiligo.
  • Be happy, distressed
  • We also encourage our patients to avoid non-veg foods and foods with artificial colors and preservatives along with the canned foods for a better recovery.
