Diet Plan for Vitiligo (Leucoderma)

It is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches and patches. Vitiligo which is also known as leucoderma that is not particular to some specific areas as it can affect any body part such as hair, mouth or eyes. The extent and rate of color loss is unpredictable as in some cases it is slow and in some cases the color loss is rapid. Vitiligo occurs when the cells producing melanin which is responsible for our skin color is damaged or destroyed. A healthy diet is needed to improve the Immune system and to control the spreading of white patches. The risk of this disease is more common in people with dark complexion.
