Pyrrole Disorder

Pyrrole Disorder

What is pyrrole disorder?
Pyrrole disorder (also called pyroluria) is a mood and stress disorder. It is often a heritable condition in the Irish, English, Welsh and Scandinavian people groups. Pyrroles have little or no function in the body and are constantly excreted in urine. However, for a pyroluric individual, nutrient deficiencies occur because these molecules have an affinity for zinc and vitamin B6, and latch onto and excrete them in urine before the body is able to absorb them. Another feature of pyroluria is a deficiency of arachidonic acid (AA) (a polyunsaturated omega 6 essential fatty acid), which is a critical component of brain function, as well as normal growth and development.

Why is it a problem?
Pyroluric individuals are severely depressed in zinc and vitamin B6. Zinc and vitamin B6 are critical for a healthy immune system, neurotransmitter balance, as well as maintaining intellectual function, mood, and memory to name a few. Suboptimal levels of these important nutrients result in high irritability and temper, poor stress control, memory and concentration problems, severe mood swings, explosive anger and rage, anxiety, and depression.

Who can have pyrrole disorder?
I often see females and children with severe mood swings, high sensitivity, hyperactivity, an inability to tolerate stress, morning nausea, and night owl tendencies to have Pyrrole disorder. However, any gender of any age can have this condition. It is often hereditary, but can also be brought on by chronic stress or a traumatic event.

How can we fix it?
This condition can be safely corrected and balanced with dietary and nutrient therapy.
