Concern over toxic exposure, extreme fatigue, thyroid disorders, infertility
The Toxic Element Clearance Profile offers an assessment of toxic and potentially toxic elements excreted in urine. Accumulations of these toxic metals can occur in the human body in response to occupational exposures or to environmental exposures from toxic release in air, soil or industrial waste streams.
Chronic toxic element exposure may adversely affect respiratory, renal, cardiac, hepatic and immune functions, compromise cognitive and emotional health, debilitate energy levels, impair neurological development and function, trigger reproductive dysfunction, and increase the risk of degenerative conditions.
This test enables practitioners to 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). Urine can be collected following the administration of a “challenge” agent.
Sample requirements: 2 x 10ml urine sample.
Patient requirements: Please ensure patient is aware if test is to be completed as a random/timed urine collection or a 24-hour urine collection.
2 days before the test discontinue supplements containing Creatinine, Vitamin C or any of the mineral elements measured on this test. Avoid fruits, juices, beer, tea and seafood (unless monitoring effects of consumption).
On the day of collection continue with the above food restrictions until sample is completely collected (unless asked to continue by your practitioner). Number of timed hours (if timed), patient’s height, weight and whether the sample was part of a provocation, must be recorded.
Analytes measured: Aluminium, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Bismuth, Cadmuim,Cesium,Gadolinium, Gallium, Mercury, Lead,Nickel, Niobium, Platinum,Rubidium, Sulphur, Thallium, Thorium, Tin, Tungsten, Uranium, Creatinine
