Toxic Metal Urine Analysis

Heavy metals are posing an increasing threat on not only our environment but our health as well. We are being bombarded through water, air, soil, and food in countless assaults – but rarely assessing for toxic burden. Urine and/or hair element analysis is an invaluable tool for the diagnosis or confirmation of toxic element burden and monitoring of detoxification therapy.

Analysis of the levels of toxic metals in urine after the administration of a metal detoxification agent is an objective way to evaluate the accumulation of toxic metals. Acute metal poisoning is rare. More common, however, is a chronic, low-level exposure to toxic metals that can result in significant retention in the body that can be associated with a vast array of adverse health effects and chronic disease.

Analysis of elements in urine/hair provides diagnostic information on potentially toxic elements such as lead, mercury, cadmium, nickel, beryllium, arsenic and aluminum, etc.

This test is useful for:

  • Toxic Element Exposure
  • Alopecia
  • Bone Density
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Depression
  • Dermatitis or Poor Wound Healing
  • Detoxification Therapy
  • Fatigue
  • Gastrointestinal Symptoms
  • Hypertension
  • Immune Function
  • Impaired Glucose Tolerance
  • Inflammation
  • Kidney Function
  • Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Parkinson’s-like Symptoms
