with the common thread being zinc which is low in both vitiligo and ms
Zinc and its status in some dermatologic diseases--a statistical assessmenthttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3442079
"Significant low blood-levels of zinc were only proved in vitiligo..."
aim for 18.2 umol/L serum zinc. the 'normal' range is 11.5-18.5 umol/L.
most ms patients sit in the lower end of the range (with links to associated uric acid and vit D3 problems)
i used to get lab results indicating candida infection, but at the time i was zinc deficient.
now i have corrected the zinc problem, and there are no more candida findings.
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
