Labs: Toxic Elements & Heavy Metals Profile (urine)

24-hour urine test for 15 toxic elements and 20 heavy metals


Product Description

The Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile is a toxic exposure test which measures urinary excretion of 15 nutrient elements and 20 toxic metals. These include classic toxins such as lead, mercury, and arsenic, as well as newer technology toxins such as niobium. This is an ideal toxic exposure test for patients suspected of toxic metal exposure as well as potential nutrient mineral wasting.

The Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile offers an advanced, comprehensive assessment of toxic and potentially toxic elements excreted in urine. In addition to measuring classic elemental toxins, this profile includes elements used in the medical, aerospace, nuclear, and high-tech electronics industries.

Health Consequences of Toxic Exposure
Evidence suggests that chronic toxic element exposure can adversely affect:

Energy levels
Reproductive function
Cancer risk
Neurological development and function
Respiratory, cardiac, hepatic, and immune functions
Cognitive and emotional health
Degenerative conditions
Toxins and Sources of Exposure
Accumulations of element toxins can occur in the human body in response to occupational exposures or to environmental exposures from toxic release in air, soil, or industrial waste systems. These sources include:

Metal refining
Plating and parts manufacturing in aerospace and machine tool industries
Fabrication of nuclear reactor fuel assemblies
Electronics and computer manufacturing
According to the EPA, the US has the largest electronics(including computer) workforce in the world. Exposures to the measured elements can occur in other occupations as ell, including:

Welding and metal shaping
Oil refining
Military or police service (with weapons use)
Handling of disposal of wastes
Manufacturing of pigments and coatings
Petrochemical production
The Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile assesses urinary excretion of toxic elements acquired through chronic or acute exposure. Practitioners can effectively monitor the progress of detoxification regimens and nutrient element status during treatment. All toxic metals are reported as micrograms/g creatinine or as micrograms per 24 hours (if a 24-hour urine specimen is provided).

The Comprehensive Urine Element Profile measures urinary excretion of nutrient elements and toxic metals, including classic toxins such as lead, mercury, and arsenic. This is an ideal test for patients suspected of toxic element exposure as well as potential nutrient mineral wasting.
