At this time of fear and uncertainty, we are receiving an abundance of queries from our patients regarding the Vitiligo condition and the effect this virus may have on them. Vitiligo and your immune system is a subject that we need to expand on:
The immune system is on everyone around the worlds lips together with Corona COVID-19 virus. It is believed those with a compromised immune system are more likely to suffer a more intense form of COVID-19.
Your immune system is a complex and finely tuned network of cells
While it is widely believed that Vitiligo is an autoimmune disease it is NOT to say Vitiligo sufferers with be more susceptible to the COVID-19 virus.
Your immune system is a complex and finely tuned network of cells and tissues throughout the body (e.g., skin, gut, spleen, liver, lymph nodes)This system is constantly working to defend against infection from harmful pathogens such as bacteria and viruses.
When the immune system recognizes a threat, it mounts a response. It releases white blood cells and other immune compounds that destroy foreign invaders.
In fact, the antibodies stay in a person’s body for future use
Older adults tend to have a weaker immune system than younger adults. With age, it’s thought that the body produces fewer T cells – white blood cells that attack pathogens.
As well, insufficient levels of certain nutrients can be common in older people due to decreased appetite, chewing and swallowing problems, or reduced nutrient absorption in the gut.
Amazingly, the immune system keeps its own record of every germ that has entered your body and has been destroyed. It uses this stored information to work more quickly to destroy repeat invasions by the same micro-organisms. In fact, the antibodies stay in a person’s body for future use.
Blood tests are generally used to test the immune system. These tests can determine if the levels of infection-fighting proteins (immunoglobulin) in your blood are normal. They also measure the levels of red and white blood cells as well as immune system cells. Abnormal numbers of certain cells can indicate a defective immune system.
Certain autoimmune conditions weaken the immune system making it easier to develop infections, colds, and flu. This means that people with chronic immune conditions tend to be sick more. And often taking longer to recover from these illnesses. At the age of 7 or 8, most of people’s immune system development is complete.
