People with depression or other mental health disorders often have high levels of Kryptopyrroles in their urine when tested. Kryptopyrroles rob the body of vitamin B6 and zinc, causing these nutrients to be excreted in the urine, this results in a deficiency of B6 and zinc that requires supplementation to correct.

There are many signs and symptoms of  Pyroluria which can occur at any age but is brought on by stress. There seems to be a familial or genetic component as it is most often seen in females and runs in families.
