Pyrroluria is an irreversible metabolic condition induced by stress, that causes an increased conversion of hemaglobin into pyrroles. When in excess, pyrroles spill into the urine, carrying away bodily stores of vitamins B6 and zinc.
This is an important test to determine with all individuals who experience excessive stress or emotional meltdowns. B6 and zinc are responsible for many important biochemical reactions in the body. With respect to mood and behavior issues, they are important mediators to the production of serotonin, dopamine and glutathione.
DHA labs utilizes an excellent ‘Walsh approved’ technique for testing urinary pyrroles. When you receive your pyrrole test kit in the mail, please follow handling instructions carefully to be sure the results are accurate.
