I wish I could tell you. My boyfriend has had it since he was a child, and he's probably the biggest promoter of Primal and what it has done for me, but he won't try it himself.
I remember hearing on a podcast somewhere that a young kid had it pretty bad, and it went away fairly quickly with either Primal or Paleo. Pretty easy to document something like that. Unfortunately, it was at least a couple of months back, so I don't remember whose podcast it was or the guest's name.

Whoa, thank you!! I definitely didn't think anybody would even know what I was talking about, and here you fantastic ladies are with advise and all. Thanks!
Honestly, when I first met my boyfriend, I though he had a chemical burn on his hands. Didn't think twice, but later he said it was vitiligo. No big deal to me either way. In fact, I love beards on men, and told him I hoped he never shaved his. Turns out, he has a good-sized spot on his chin, so he'll never shave the beard off. Bonus for me!
Tell him he can get rid of the chin spot with Protopic ointment. It works great on the face, jst not so great on hands and feet.
As a happy bearer of these wondrous living tattoos, I am happy to say that going primal did not reduce the appearance of my vitiligo.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
