Porphyrias are a series of inherited disorders that can affect the skin, nervous system, or both. Porphyrins are normally produced by the body, during the production of heme which is an essential component of hemoglobin. If the body lacks any enzymes, the porphyrins can build up in the body to dangerous levels. Porphyria can lead to complications such as dehydration, high blood pressure, liver or kidney disease, skin damage, and breathing difficulties. Measuring the levels of porphyrins excreted in the urine can help a person's doctor to diagnose and differentiate between different types of porphyria.

No special preparation required.
