- Vitiligo is associated with low vitamin D (nothing about treatment) – meta-analysis March 2016
- Vitamin D Receptor in vitiligo skin activated by UVB – May 2018
- Spotty skin coloring (vitiligo) treated by augmenting topical tacrolimus with oral Vitamin D – Oct 2016
- Video by Dr. Coimbra – 95 percent of auto-immune cured with vitamin D in high doses - April 2014
- Vitamin D has treated Multiple Sclerosis and autoimmune diseases for 16 years – Coimbra April 2018 -Note: Vitiligo is an auto-immune disease
Increased risk of Vitiligo if:
Low Vitamin D in blood
Poor Vitamin D Receptor which restricts Vitamin D getting to skin cells
Increase intake of Vitamin D
Increase VDR activation (see below)
Autoimmune category starts with
151 items in Autoimmune category
- Overviews of Vitamin D and MS Asthma RA Diabetes Gut Allergy Hay Fever Muscular Dystrophy
- Lupus category has
59 items Psoriasis category has 53 items
11 studies of just Autoimmune and Vitamin D Receptor (yel more for VDR and MS, Asthma, Diabetes, etc)
- Autoimmune disease clusters run in families having low D
- How Vitamin D reduces inflammation, improves immunity and fights autoimmunity – review Dec 2018
- 120 doctors and 20,000 MS patients using high dose Vitamin D Dec 2018
- Vitamin D has treated Multiple Sclerosis and autoimmune diseases for 16 years – Coimbra April 2018
- Many autoimmune diseases associated with low vitamin D or poor Vit D genes – July 2019
Vitamin D Receptor category has the following
331 items in Vitamin D Receptor category
Vitamin D tests cannot detect Vitamin D Receptor (VDR) problems
A poor VDR restricts Vitamin D from getting in the cells
It appears that 30% of the population has a poor VDR (40% of the Obese )
VDR at-home test $29 - results not easily understood in 2016
There are hints that you may have inherited a poor VDR
Compensate for poor VDR by increasing one or more:
Increasing Increases 1) Vitamin D supplement
Sun, Ultraviolet -B
Vitamin D in the blood
and thus in the cells
2) Magnesium Vitamin D in the blood
AND in the cells
3) Omega-3 Vitamin D in the cells 4) Resveratrol Vitamin D Receptor 5) Intense exercise Vitamin D Receptor 6) Get prescription for VDR activator
Vitamin D Receptor 7) Quercetin (flavonoid) Vitamin D Receptor 8) Zinc is in the VDR Vitamin D Receptor 9) Boron Vitamin D Receptor ?,
10) Essential oils e.g. ginger, curcumin Vitamin D Receptor 11) Progesterone Vitamin D Receptor 12) Infrequent high concentration Vitamin D
Increases the concentration gradient
Vitamin D in the cells
Note: If you are not feeling enough benefit from Vitamin D, you might try increasing VDR activation. You might feel the benefit within days of adding one or more of the above
Far healthier and stronger at age 72 due to supplements Includes 6 supplements which help the VDR
If poor Vitamin D Receptor
OBJECTIVES: To explore the relationship among the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms, serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels, and vitiligo.
Databases including PubMed, Cochrane Library, Ovid, Web of Science, CNKI, SinoMed, and Wanfang Data were systematically searched. The association was assessed using odds ratios (ORs), standard mean difference (SMD), and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). The statistical tests were performed using Review Manager 5.3.3.
We identified a total of 17 studies. The relationship between VDR gene polymorphisms (BsmI, ApaI, TaqI, and FokI), serum 25 (OH)D levels, and incidence of vitiligo was investigated. The results of this meta-analysis showed that the
- dominant genetic model (CC+AC vs AA, P = .007, OR = 1.41, 95% CI = 1.10-1.80),
- recessive genetic model (CC vs AC+AA, P = .01, OR = 4.10, 95% CI = 1.36-12.35), and
- allelic contrast model (C vs A, P = .005, OR = 1.87, 95% CI = 1.21-2.90)
- of VDR Apal locus increased the risk of vitiligo, and BsmI, TaqI, and FokI loci and the risk of vitiligo have no obvious correlation.
Serum 25 (OH)D deficiency was positively associated with the incidence of vitiligo (P < .0001, SMD = -0.94, 95% CI = -1.39, -0.48).
This meta-analysis revealed that VDR Apal polymorphism increased the susceptibility risk of vitiligo, and there is a positive correlation between serum 25 (OH)D deficiency and the incidence of vitiligo.
