Why Do I Have Pyroluria?

A commonly asked question that I often hear in the clinic is "How did I get Pyroluria?" or "What causes Pyroluria?" Many practitioners believe that Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder is caused by genetic factors, and this may be true for some Pyroluria Sufferers. However, with over 15 years of clinical experience in treating Pyroluria, we have found that nearly 65% of patients who have Pyroluria suffer from 'Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria' and not 'Genetic Pyroluria'.

The difference between Genetic Pyroluria and Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria?

Genetic Pyroluria is caused by a fault in the genes and is passed down from one generation to the next. Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria is caused by a variety of lifestyle factors and underlying health issues.

Common Causes of Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria

Candida Inflammation
Chemical exposure Insufficient Liver Detoxification
Drugs Leaky Gut Syndrome
Dysbiosis Nutritional Deficiencies
Excessive Alcohol Oxidative Stress
Food Allergies Poor Dietary Habits
Heavy Metal Toxicity SIBO
Inadequate Digestive Function Stress

 Is Pyroluria The Cause - Pyroluria Test

Interestingly, we find that 100% of Pyroluria sufferers, regardless of whether they have Genetic or Lifestyle Generated Pyroluria, show dramatic improvements in their symptoms when they take the necessary steps to rectify the underlying causes or factors that exacerbate Pyroluria. In many cases, people who initially tested positive for Pyroluria, test negative or borderline on subsequent tests once these underlying issues have been addressed.

Treating the underlying causes of Pyroluria is a more comprehensive strategy, which addresses the body as a whole, rather than taking long term nutritional supplementation. Yes, dietary supplements are essential in the early stages of any Pyroluria treatment protocol, as they are required to rectify the underlying nutritional deficiencies and imbalances. However, the downside with long term supplementation, besides the expense, is that the supplements can cause reduced levels of other nutrients, in particular, copper, manganese and iron. This, in itself, can lead to different types of diseases or health problems, and it leaves the underlying causes or factors that are left untreated.

Is Pyrrole Disorder Causing you to Suffer?

Pyrrole Disorder can best be described as the abnormal synthesis and metabolism of the oxygen carrying molecule in your blood, called haemoglobin. All cells in your body produce waste or by-products and the by-product of haemoglobin is a metabolite called hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one (HPL) also known as Pyrrole. This metabolite was originally thought to be a Kryptopyrrole but further studies have proven this not the case.
