Availability: In stock

Preparation

No fasting is required.  Ship to lab Monday-Thursday only.  Please read all of the directions and the collection procedures prior to starting test. Two days prior to testing it is recommended to discontinue the consumption of seafood, supplements containing creatinine, vitamin C, or any mineral elements measured on this test. Continue with the above restrictions until your sample is completely collected. Check with physician before stopping medications. Female patients should not collect urine during a menstrual period.

Test Results 7-10 days once the lab receives the specimen. May take longer based on weather, holiday or lab delays.

The Comprehensive Urine Element Profile includes 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.

Nutrient and Toxic Elements Tested:

Nutrient Elements: Calcium, Chromium, Cobalt, Copper, Iron, Lithium, Manganese, Magnesium, Molybdenum, Potassium, Selenium, Strontium, Sulfur, Vanadium, Zinc

Toxic Elements: Aluminum, Antimony, Arsenic, Barium, Bismuth, Cadmium, Cesium, Gadolinium, Gallium, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Niobium, Platinum, Rubidium, Thallium, Thorium, Tin, Tungsten, Uranium 

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 the air, soil, or industrial waste systems. These sources include:

  • Metal refining
  • Alloying
  • 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 well, including:

  • Welding and metal shaping
  • Plumbing
  • Oil refining
  • Military or police service (with weapons use)
  • Handling of disposal of wastes
  • Manufacturing of pigments and coatings
  • Petrochemical production
