Pyrrole Disorder (Kryptopyrrole) Treatment

Pyrrole Disorder (Kryptopyrrole) Treatment

Pyroluria (also known as pyrrole disorder and Kryptopyrrole, among other names) is a common chemical imbalance caused by an abnormality in the body’s synthesis of haemoglobin. Mostly seen in women, the disorder can be genetic and/or triggered by environmental factors such as trauma, illness, prolonged stress, ‘leaky gut syndrome’, and the overuse of antibiotics.

Pyroluria is a factor in several emotional and behavioural disorders, and can manifest in a myriad of ways. It will typically first appear as behavioural abnormalities in children, but can continue into adulthood. Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic offers Kryptopyrrole treatment for patients in Melbourne. With a range of options available, we’ll determine the most appropriate form of treatment to help relieve symptoms of the condition.

Causes and Triggers

There are multiple possible causes and triggers that might result in a person developing Kryptopyrrole. Treatment can aid in alleviating some of the symptoms, but the most appropriate form of Kryptopyrrole treatment will depend on its root cause.

Potential causes and triggers might include:

  • Genetics
  • ‘Leaky gut syndrome’
  • Overconsumption of antibiotics
  • Childhood trauma
  • Stress
  • Chronic infection early in life
  • Alcoholism (either of the sufferer or a parent)
  • Environmental toxicity
  • Poor diet
  • The physical stresses caused by illness

  • Inability to control stress

How is the Test Performed?
