Today, the condition is generally referred to as "pyroluria." In the 1970s, Dr.
Sandeep Gupta, MD, from Australia has stated that parasites and pyroluria almost always go together.
There is a group of disorders related to pyroluria called porphyrias.
In the US, pyroluria and porphyria are viewed as separate conditions.
Klinghardt notes that discussions on the topic of porphyria are much more widely accepted than those on pyroluria. In his experience, he finds that almost all of his patients have elevated porphyrins, and that pyroluria is the deeper core issue.
While many with pyroluria may benefit from manganese, it may act as a growth factor for untreated Lyme disease, and thus, some may prefer to avoid its use in this patient population.

These imbalances include CBS and/or methylation gene, hypoglycemia, histadelia (high levels of blood histamine), pyroluria
(abnormality in hemoglobin synthesis), hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, thyroid disorders, food allergies, heavy metals, and amino acid imbalances.
I have endeavored to touch upon some key points and issues but did not provide additional information regarding specific nutrient deficiencies, the adrenal-dysregulation connection (which I cover in depth in my e-book, Rethinking Fatigue: What your Adrenals are Really Telling You and What You Can Do About It), and the special nutritional requirements accompanying genetic metabolic conditions affecting depression in some, such as pyroluria
. (37) I also lacked the space to tie in my experience using neurofeedback training, which I have found to be a profound adjunct to nutritional regimens in helping to synergize the best possible functional improvements.
