Pyroluria is characterized by elevated urine Kryptopyrrole levels, which result in a dramatic deficiency of zinc and vitamin B6. A high Kryptopyrrole result is also known as pyroluria, pyrrole disorder, or elevated pyrroles.
The DHA laboratory will provide you with the most accurate Kryptopyrrole result on the market. They are the only laboratory in the U.S.A. that provides a corrected Kryptopyrrole result. Their corrected result accounts for the concentration or dilution of the urine specimen. For example, if the patient has consumed a large amount of water prior to collection, the pyrrole levels will be lower in the initial result. This is due to the fact that the specimen is diluted. DHA Laboratory performs a validated procedure that calculates the level of dilution. Their procedure allows them to compensate for dilution (or concentration) in the corrected result. This allows the patients to have an accurate pyrrole result regardless of the concentration of the urine specimen. Due to the calculation we perform, patients only need to collect a one-time urine collection.
