I am new on here and symptomatic of Hydrothroidism.
One of my long term symptoms since being ill has been an inability to produce melanin.
I went from having olive skin to pasty white skin within a shortime and began to burn terribly in the sun, (unless i wore total sunblock)) hence not being able attain a suntan. Skin specialists were baffled and just told me to stay out of the sun. Easy said than done when we were planning to move abroad to move to Australia. Because of other worse symptoms of this illness I never pursued what could be causing this problem.
However after recent research, I supplemented with L-Tyrosine last year when I went on holiday and for the first time in 30 years my skin tanned. Apparently there is a connection with the manufacturing of melanin and Tyrosine?
Has any on else on here encoutered this symptom?
