Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
This is Dr. David
with a diagnosis of sarcoidosis, I would see both a rheumatologist doctor who treats patients who have autoimmune disorders and also see a dermatologist as well about your skin and vitaligo and sarcoidosis.
you should see an endocrinologist about your hypothyroidism and make sure your TSH is in the proper range.
let me know if you have other questions.

sarcoidosis is a complicated autoimmune disorder where your body puts down too much scar tissue or granuloma in your skin and body
we don't know what causes it.
steroid therapy can help decrease how much scar tissue is caused by sarcoidosis, but steroids can also increase your appetite, cause poor sleep, decrease your immune system, cause opportunistic infections, upset your stomach as side effects.
