I recently tested “borderline” for this condition. On one hand I've read that treatment is as simple as high dose B-6 and zinc supplements and that results can be profound. On the other hand I've found some conflicting information. It seems there is some controversy on whether or not it even exists and whether it is genetic or not. I'm wondering if there may be any relationship to gluten sensitivity. Could it explain continued problems coping with stress and very difficult time with mornings? I would love to get Dr. O's view on it, and/or hear from anyone else dealing with pyroluria. Thanks.
Itcan be genetic and it can also be nutrition deficiency induced. Depends on the person (as always). It does exist
I commonly see schizophrenic patients with this issue. Interesting that gluten is also linked to schizophrenia (Bread madness). I haven't come across any research on the two together. Unfortunately, one of the leading minds on this topic recently passed away. RIP – Dr. Abram Hoffer.
Thanks Dr. O. Can you point me to any books, websites, or good research on how to manage/treat pyroluria? I'm having trouble finding anything more than general info/brief description on the subject; nothing with a supplement protocol, which is what I'm looking for. I will search under Dr. Abram Hoffer though, thanks.
