    Hypothyroidism and Vitiligo

    Does anyone know if there is a connection between hypothyroidism and vitiligo? I know vitiligo is the bodies' immune system attacking the melanocytecells in the skin - I wonder if a similar attack could be happening to the thyroid gland by the same immune response at the same time. I ask because I have vitiligo on my hands as well as hypothyroidism. Anyone else have both?

    I would have thought it's more to do with adrenal fatigue rather that direct relation between thyroid and vitiligo but then again I dont know much about it.

    It's extremely frustrating that there are some signs and symptoms which happen to occur to regular people but nobody actually knows what causes it

    I'm going to have to dig into this adrenal fatigue issue I guess. I've been avoiding it. Are you saying the Hypothyroidism and Adrenal Fatigue can go hand-in-hand, or you've heard of adrenal fatigue and vitiligo?
