    Hi Maria,

    Do you think that Calcium d-glucarate may help for pyrrole as much as it does for Gilbert Syndrome?

    Best wishes!!

    My son has his test results back, but it has ++++ not a number. Does four plus signs mean 40? The doctor didn’t explain this to me

    Hi there
    My daughter was tested for pyrroles a few years ago and since then my naturopath has prescribed her Pure Children’s Essentials – Orthoplex, and a zinc primer cream. However after reading your article on pyrroles I see that the diagnosis for pyrroles has been changed to >40mcg/dl – my daughter tested at 20 mcg/dl). Do you think we need to continue with treatment? I don’t want to overload her body with VitB6 and Zinc if she doesn’t really need it. TIA Stephanie

      Hi Stephanie, the children’s cut off is still 20 (40 is the adult cut off). I always treat the whole person and their symptoms, not just a test score.

    Hi Maria,

    I have been urged to have testing for pyrrole disorder. I’m in Brisbane. Can we consult and see what we can do?

    Kindest regards

    Hello my name is carolyn Kneller. My story is extreme. It is not for me that I write this but for my son. My son Timothy has only a few hours ago told us he has Pyrolluria and in telling me also told of the traumas he has been through in the last 5 years. Tim is 24 and married at 19 to the most viscous hateful girl we have ever known. Because of her insecurities she forbid Tim to have anything to do with us so for 4 years we have not been able to contact him. They have recently separated and so tim has been able to contact us again and this is how we’ve learnt of the traumatic things he has been through. His dad and I are really anxious to get him help, is there any way possible you may be able to help us.
