What is Pyrrole?


Many people have this disorder and yet it still goes largely unrecognised.

Pyrrole disorder is an inherited metabolic disorder that results in an excessive byproduct production of urinary kyptopyrroles that are produced during the syntheis of haemoglobin and myoglobin. Urinary kyptopyrroles have a high affinity for the nutrients zinc and B6 and permanently bind to these nutrients, excreting these from the body, rendering these key nutrients unavailable for their many functions within the body.

The symptoms exhibited in the individual are primarily those of zinc and B6 insufficiency and largely relate to the lack of formation of neurotransmitters. Sufferers of this condition are highly susceptible to stress. Pyrrole disorder is evident in as high as 10% of the general population and up to 30-­60% in psychosis patients.

Conditions associated with Pyrrole disorder include anxiety, depression, autism, ADD/ADHD, schizophrenia and bi­polar. Treatment is available and should be in consultation with a biomedical practitioner.
