A No-Nonsense Guide To Vitiligo

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


This unique book is best described as a practical guide for those patients who have been looking for a better way to manage vitiligo.

Yan Valle, the CEO of Vitiligo Research Foundation, will cut through all the clutter surrounding vitiligo, debunk some common myths, and reveal what you really need to know to understand and manage vitiligo with minimal effort.

“A No-Nonsense Guide To Vitiligo” is based on author's years of research and practical experience. It contains the hidden truth about vitiligo and its connection with other diseases, common household items, daily stress and environmental factors.

The author shares proven techniques you too can use to detect early signs of vitiligo, identify potential triggers, be confident about available treatment options, their efficacy and possible side-effects.

The smart and accessible book is comprised of three sections: Body, Environment, and Treatments. Of course, there is tremendous overlap across the sections, as they are interdependent. In fact, you could think of the three as a tripod, upon which any treatment is balanced. One needs all three to have any sustainable success in treating vitiligo – or indeed any other condition.

Though it is not always easy, or even possible, to treat vitiligo, there is much to be gained by clearly understanding the diagnosis, the future implications of the disease, and the treatment alternatives and their side effects.

And because vitiligo affects more quality of life rather than actual lifespan, the choice between treatment and no treatment at all becomes apparent. There are many subtle nuances that can tip the scale in favor of a Yes or No answer, or freeze it in the middle.

We will review common types of vitiligo and its triggers, explore first-, second- and third-line treatments, camouflage and depigmentation tools, supplements and their applicability.

Factors to consider include age of patient and disease onset, type of vitiligo and localization, familial and disease history, overall health condition, living and working environments, prospects of frequent travel or military service, financial situation, access to certain treatments, and most importantly – personal motivation.

On this journey through a maze of facts and myths, we’ll pause to understand medical jargon and decipher cryptic communications from your doctor. Using the knowledge in this book, you will be able to give your doctor vital information about yourself, to better help him or her offer the therapy you need.

A half of fifty seven bite-sized chapters recounts a conversation or situation that the author has been a part of as CEO of VR Foundation. Real-life examples are used to illustrate different vitiligo treatment scenarios, which you can discuss further with your doctor.

Of course, every doctor makes mistakes in diagnosis and treatment. Sometimes, vitiligo symptoms do not readily suggest a clear solution. Other times, there is a range of possible treatments and no single therapy is clearly superior to the others. Doctors and nurses are not infallible, especially in a neglected disease like vitiligo. So, we will review some of the most common mistakes, and how they can be corrected.

It's easy to read over a weekend, yet it is extensively referenced to encourage a deeper investigation into the subject, if necessary.
