Heavy Metal Test       

This is a preliminary determination of the presence of cadmium, cobalt, copper, lead, manganese, mercury, nickel, zinc in a sample of your urine.

How does it work? You have to collect a first morning urine specimen using a general urine sample bottle, available in every pharmacy or at our offices. In less than 30 min we will give you a detailed report of the test with specific conclusions and advices to follow.

Why should I take this test? This is an important test because heavy metals are strongly associated with excessive free radical activity, which can cause damage to the healthy state of the body including depleting the body's immune system. Long term exposure to cadmium is associated with renal dysfunction, obstructive lung diseases, lung cancer and bone defects.

Long term exposure of chromium can cause kidney and liver damage and it can also cause damage to circulatory and nerve tissues. High doses of copper can cause anaemia, liver and kidney damage, and stomach and intestinal irritation. High exposure to lead can cause problems in the synthesis of haemoglobins, damage to the kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, joints, reproductive system and the nervous system. Inorganic mercury poisoning is associated with tremors, gingivitis and/or minor psychological changes together with spontaneous abortion and congenital malformation. Mono-methyl-mercury causes damage to the brain and the central nervous system while fetal and post-natal exposures have given rise to abortion, congenital malformation and development changes in young children. Long term exposure of nickel can cause decreased body weight, heart and liver damage and skin irritation. Exposure to high levels of arsenic can cause death, kidney and liver damage. Manganese is known to block calcium channels and with chronic exposure results in CNS dopamine depletion. Aluminium toxicity is associated with the development of bone disorders including fractures, osteopenia and osteomalacia.
