Need help understanding Urinary Porphyrin Profile test results

Recommended Posts

I got back a Urinary Porphyrins test from the Laboratoire de Biologie Medicale in Paris France. The following things have been flaged.


Uroporphyrins I & II 17 Reference value 10-16


Precoproporphyrin 14 Reference value 3-9


Coproporphyrins I & II 139 Reference value 70-130


Total Porphyrinuria 177 Reference range 87-163


From what research I have done, this test is used with Autism and PANDAS. My son does not have this diagnosis but is being seen by a specialist in this area. The precoproporphin indicates mercury levels but still don't understand what is related to the others. I will continue to research online. Trying to remain calm because I really have no ideas what this means. Any help would be appreciated?

I find this interesting. Who ordered the test? Was it online? Maybe if you contact the lab sometimes they can tell you the names of Drs that regularly order it and you could contact them for a consult. Good Luck!
