Total Urine Porphyrin

The total amount of porphyrins in a urine sample is easily measured. This is a useful test for screening especially when combined with ALA and PBG.

An increase in urine porphyrins is non-specific, and may not be an indication of an acute Porphyria if ALA and PBG are normal.

A variety of porphyrins are present in urine. When there is an increase, particularly a large increase, in total urine porphyrins, it is often useful to determine the individual porphyrins found in urine. It is seldom important to do this if the total is normal.
