Pyroluria and Candida

by Greg Newson February 27, 2018

Candida (a fungal yeast overgrowth) and Pyroluria (an inability to utilize zinc, vitamin B6 and biotin) are two conditions that may seem worlds apart.

A commonly asked questions that I hear after "How did I get Pyroluria?" is "What causes Pyroluria?" Many practitioners believe that Pyroluria is caused by genetic factors and this may be true to a degree.

Why Test For Pyroluria?

Why Test For Pyroluria?

This metabolite was originally thought to be a Kryptopyrrole but further studies have proven this not the case.
