Description:

The Urine Toxic Metals analysis measures the retention of toxic metals in the body.

 

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 not chronic disease. However, valid conclusions about adverse health effects of metals cannot be made without assessing net retention. For an individual, toxicity occurs when net retention exceeds physiological tolerance. Net retention is determined by the difference between the rates of assimilation and excretion of metals.

 

The body also contains nutrients elements that are essential for the body to function efficiently. These nutrient elements including magnesium, chromium, zinc, copper and selenium, and are obligatory co-factors for hundreds of important enzymes and also are necessary for the normal functions of vitamins. The levels of these elements in hair are correlated with levels in organs and other tissues.
