Vitiligo, High Thyroid Anti-Bodies, Normal Throid etc

Hi,
I have recently been diagnosed with Vitiligo and obviously an Auto-Immune Condition. I have had all Thyroid, Glucose, Iron, etc tests and the only thing that came back abnormal was very high Thyroid Anti-Bodies (over 450).
I have been on an Auto-Immune Paleo Diet for 6 weeks now and other than reduced bloating, have not seen any changes. I have also been on Glucogenics, Digestive Enzymes, Probiotics & Green Tea to help fix my gut but have not seen any improvement and the Glucogenics and Green Tea make me nauseous. My doctor basically just said come back in 6 months and we can check everything again but I want answers and don't want to lose any more pigment in my skin. I am also on medication for anxiety/ depression (chemical imbalance type). Is anyone else going through the same thing?

Aside from your thyroid issues.. u definitely  have some major gut issues not seen with typical hypothyroidism or hashis.

Vitiligo can be genetic but it can also be caused by parasite infections

this could explain your gut trouble.. There are a myriad of things that can cause gut issues.. been there for sure. I have lyme.. and that brings about parasites, co infections like bartonella.. it' triggered my hashis as well.. overactive immune system..

I tried all the gut protocols but the one that has healed me and many others i've referred to is a sibo remedy located here..

You also need to get your thyroid balanced , anecdotally if you you dial in your thyroid its supposed to calm down the attack and your antibodies should decrease.

Focus on clearing your gut with the above protocol.. drink lots of water with it.. add some probiotics to the resistant starch.. I used version A.

expect some bloating and gas initially as you start feeding your bifido.. that will subside and u will see amazing results soon there after.. it takes about  2 to 3 months following the protocol daily. I would also look at heavy metals with hair analysis.. I've been chelating and it's making a huge difference..

Unfortunately these suggestions fringe on the outskirts of mainstream medicine.. it was the only thing that worked for me though.

I have more white spots than I did back as a teenager.  The white spots really show up more notably after being in the sun. My type of vitiligo is non-segmental vitiligo which shows up equally on both sides of the body with a kind of symmetry.  

My other autoimmune diseases: pernicious anaemia, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, alopecia areta. With my hashimoto's thyroiditis, my thyroid labs were "normal" for about 3 to 4 years but it wasn't my normal.  If you have your thyroid labs please post them. Anxiety and depression are two of the many possible symptoms of a thyroid imbalance.
