I am new to the forum but I have been visiting the site since I was diagnosed with PA 4 months ago. I previously had Graves Disease and I also have vitiligo. Recent tests revealed that I am diabetic. Testing also confirmed the presence of IF and APC antibodies (apparently a very strong positive) and an absence of stomach acid. I have just had a gastroscopy.
My question is about my skin, which has darkened significantly since treatment started. The darkening is restricted to my face, which is now several shades darker than the rest of my body.
Any thoughts about what may be causing this?
I should add that I was also deficient in vitamin D (I was taking 20,000mcg every other day for 8 weeks) and I am currently waiting for an iron infusion.
Thanks for any help you can give on this.
