Nut bingers. Could we have pyroluria?

I suffer from a lot of these symptoms;

I found it very interesting that pyroluria suffers are lacking Omega 6s and Omega 3s can actually be detrimental. Looking back I can remember some pretty rough times when I would constantly be eating salmon & downing krill oil in an attempt to get out of a rut . And I've NEVER been able to avoid nuts...If they are in my house and I know about it, I always end up eating all of them. And since nuts are high in Omega 6's it makes me wonder.

If you consider yourself a nut binger could you do me a favor and take a look at this list? I'd love to hear some feedback.

thanks! I bought evening primrose oil a few days ago. & I've been taking taking zinc pollinate, B6, P5P, & magnesium citrate as well. I went to an amusement park last night in ~55 degree temps which usually gives me cold fingers/nose & painfully dry eyes but I held up just fine. Hopefully it's not just a coincidence or placebo!

what i mean by quality omega-6's, is food & not processed oils.

having said that i do supplement with cold pressed non-gmo evening primrose oil (for GLA) when/if i have let my diet lapse

Yeah I had no idea...I always thought omega 3's could do no wrong. Dry skin/eyes have always been a problem for me. I might even stop taking my krill oil & see what happens.

What do you consider high quality omega 6's?

i came to a similar conclusion a while back. i think, for me, dry skin is a big indicator, usually means i have been over doing the fatty fish & under doing quality omega-6's.
