Drug companies profit in millions of dollars by selling drugs to treat many kinds of mental disorders such as depression, behavioral disorders, anxiety, schizophrenia and many more but the same companies pay deaf ear to ‘Pyrrole disorder,’ which is a not so popular genetic disorder that can sometimes be the cause of mental illnesses. The companies know the fact from decades but they ignore it, the reason is simple all the treatment that this genetic disorder needs lays in ‘nutrition.’
Pyrrole disorder even called as pyroluria is anticipated to affect nearly 10 % of the people but still is under the wraps.
What is pyroluria or pyrrole disorder?
It is an inherited abnormality that leads to the over manufacturing of pyrroles (also called-hydroxyhemoppyrrolin-2-one). Pyrroles are produced when the hemoglobin present in spleen synthesizes and are actually a waste produce in this process. The kidneys send them out from the body through the urine. When pyrroles are produced they combine with vitamin B6 and zinc, thereby the body cells are depleted of these two nutrients as they are excreted through the urine alongside with the pyrroles.
People suffering from pyrrole disorder have pyrroles in increased levels and so their bodies are deficient with B6 and zinc which in turn lead to many illnesses along with other symptoms.
The symptoms of pyrrole disorder:
One main symptom of Pyrrole disorder is the way it affects the body in handling stress, both mental and physical, more often it forces the body into a situation where it cannot handle the stress properly. The symptoms also include depletion of zinc, vitamin B6, biotin, magnesium and gamma-linolenic acid.
The pyrrole disorder symptoms may consist of both physical and mental symptoms. The following are the physical and mental symptoms of pyrroles:
- Decreased stress tolerance
- Panic attacks
- Moodiness or anger
- Behavioral issues
- High inner tension
- Tactile sensitivities
- Hypersensitivity to high noise, intense lighting or smell
- reduced dream recall
- Thyroid problems
- Hormonal issues
- Metabolic issues
- Obesity/odd body fat division
- Joint pain
- White skin which burns easily
- Abdominal pain
- Drug sensitivity
- Brittle or weak nails or hair
- Creaky joints
- Fluid retention
- White spots on the finger nails
- Leaky gut and more
The production of pyrroles gets increased in the human body when one undergoes stress and this increase makes the problem even worse along with increased nutrition deficiencies and many more symptoms. Going by this it only means that people who have this genetic disorder and are undiagnosed and lack treatment will simply have increased mental disorders often not knowing the cause behind.
So the best way is to go for simple and economical urine test to know pyrrole levels. Once you are diagnosed all you need to do is take prescribed drugs recommended by a physician, mostly they consist of dietary and nutritional supplements.
