  1. hahaah albinism is bloom syndrope and genitals genetic failure ahhahahaha today they have only 3 fertile generations left

  2. Suggestion:Can you add a photo of patient with particular disease in every video so we can clinically understand and differentiate disease🤘instead of this all video are good👌

  3. One thing most people don't talk about or know is that the lack of melanin in your eyes makes you very light sensitive to the point of painful. With the lack of melanin the opening and closing of the iris is pointless so it doesn't block any light. I personally hate spring and summer because even stepping outside without sunglasses burns. I mean just as an example at work the other day I was cutting onions and it stung a little bit but nothing like a sunny day at the pool!

  4. I had been really hesitant, but I am glad I attempted this particular vitiligo treatment method “Fαkαmzοt Tαhο” (Goοgle it). The results are fantastic the morning after I used it. I first used it two times a day then gradually lowering the dosage once the result is showing. My elbows are better..

  5. Thank you for the video! I suspect that many of us who have albinism struggle to answer this very question when people ask, "What happened to you?"

  6. Wait….

    Albino have white hair and white skin

    *does that mean THEY SEE WHITE??? *

  7. There is also Ocular Albinism, which mainly affects the eyes. It also appears almost exclusively in males because the mutation is on the x chromosome.
