Vitiligo patients are short of some trace metal elements in their blood and leucoderma parts,which leads to the decrease of tyrosinase activity.It will greatly influence the synthesis and metabolism of melanin and then generate lesion. Therefore,vitiligo patients should eat more foods containing copper,zinc,iron and other metallic elements.It will increase the tyrosinase activity and then speed up melanin synthesis.
1.Eat foods rich in tyrosinase and mineral substance:
Eat these foods, such as meat ( beef,rabbit meat, pork), animal liver, egg (egg,duck egg,quail egg) , milk (milk,yoghourt) , vegetables (fresh vegetables,radish,eggplant,winter bamboo shoots,agaric,kelp),
bean(soybean,pea, mung bean,bean products),peanut, semen sesami nigrum, nut,raisin,spiral shell,clam and other mussel foods.
2.Avoid the following foods:
(1)Don’t eat green onion , garlic , fish , shrimp , mutton , bamboo shoots , pickles , pepper ,wine and etc.At the same time, don’t eat spinach.Because it contains too much oxalic acid and will itch the affected region.
(2)Eat less food containing too much vitamin C. Because vitamin C will decrease the serum copper and serum copper oxidase,which will influence tyrosinase activity and disturb the synthesis of melanin.
(3)Avoid cherry.Vitiligo patients should not eat too much cherry.Cherry contains abundant vitamin C.In the process,which will interrupt melanogenesis and aggravate the illness.
Appropriate sunbath is great.The cause of vitiligo is closely related to immune, inheritance,spirit, emotion,microelement, viscera function and tyrosinase activity,etc,which will induce melanin synthesis obstacle.On the one hand, the ultraviolet ray in sunshine will greatly promote melanin metabolism. Therefore, appropriate sunbath will transfer melanophore to cortex and deepen complexion,which is in favor of vitiligo treatment.However, in hot summer,ultraviolet ray in sunshine will restrain melanin metabolism and influence the synthesis of melanin.Therefore, vitiligo patients should avoid direct sunlight.
The cause of vitiligo is quite complicated,and its treatment is difficult.People usually don’t pay much attention to the prevention of vitiligo and don’t know how to prevent it.It is quite necessary for us to popularize vitiligo prevention knowledge and decrease the morbidity.
If you want a further knowledge about vitiligo causes, you can send your own problem to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will give you a professional solution. After all, the symptoms are similar, but the real conditions are different.To treat this illness,we need to find the authentic pathogenesis according to different conditions of different patients.
