I work in pharmaceuticals, I was working with levothyroxin one weekend which is a product that is given to people with a under active thyroid so it caused my thyroid levels to elevate. I noticed a small white patch under my eye which grew to about an inch long within a week, my doctor did a blood test which confirmed my thyroid levels were high, it took 3 weeks for these results to come back he then did another blood test to consentrate on my thyroid that test came back normal and has been normal for the past 6 years. My vitiligo has not spread at all during that time up until this year it is now all over my forehead. 6 months goo I was diagnosed with hemochromatosis which is to much iron in my blood. My conclusion is that vitiligo is something I have always had but it needed a trigger. Ether thyroid or iron overload caused my amune system to activate not only was it attacking my disorders but also my skin.
thanks for reading my story steve
