Acute Intermittent Porphyria & psychosis
Posted by: laurie

Could a person with Acute Intermittent Porphyria combined with a severe sulfite intolerance develop psychosis? The American Porphyria Foundation website mentions hallucinations as a symptom for this form of Porphyria. Could a severe sulfite intolerance increase this? You mention proto-Porphyria on your sulfite intolerance page. What is that?

Proto-IX-porphyria is a variant of porphyria manifesting more variable symptoms. You do not need to have sulfite sensitivity to explain hallucinations / psychosis if you have acute intermittent porphyria, however it could make it even worse.
