Pyroluria

Pyroluria

Pyrroles are a normal byproduct of RBC production. However, at times, some individuals produce too many pyrroles which can be measured through urine. Kryptopyrroles have an affinity for zinc and B6, thus depleting the bodies source. This deficiency in B6 and zinc will directly affect the copper levels in the body, because zinc and copper are inversely proprotionate. Low zinc = high copper. Copper is very toxic to the body and zinc and B6 are important cofactors for several enzymatic processes.

This can lead to an array of symptoms including anxiety, depression, joint pain, gut issues.

It has been said that there is no direct link between Pyrrole disorder and MTHFR. However, it will affect the overall methylation status because B6 and zinc are vital to some methylation/demethylation enzymes. Also, it has been shown that copper can also inhibit some of these enzymes.

Our recommendation is to consider the testing for Pyrrole disorder. The treatment will be directed at maintaining proper zinc and B6 levels which in turn will lower the copper toxicity. This must be done cautiously and in my opinion, with guidance as to avoid excessive copper dumping.

If you are interested in testing for Pyrrole disorder, we recommend a few tests: serum zinc, copper, and ceruloplasmin to allow us to measure the percentage of unbound and bound copper.

Customer Reviews

"Within the first 10 days of therapy, which was only four treatments, I noticed a major decrease in my pain level. After about 10 sessions, my pain level diminished to hardly noticeable. I am very thankful for the treatment program because it saved my career and increased my quality of life more than I could have ever imagined."​
-Robert A.
"Dr. Michael Veselak and his spinal decompression clinic have changed my life in a way I never would have thought possible. Now, five weeks after I started my treatment, I'm back to my very active lifestyle. During my entire treatment, I've been completely medication free. I couldn't have done it without Dr. Veselak. I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone faced with surgery as their only option or people that have chronic neck and/or back pain. This is an option you cannot afford to pass up."
-Umrao M.
