Toxic Metals Fecal Kit - Doctor's Data Test Kit

The Toxic Metals Fecal Kit is an analysis of elements in feces provides indirect information about the potential for toxic metal burden. For many toxic metals, fecal (biliary) excretion is the primary natural route of elimination from the body. Fecal elemental analysis also provides a direct indication of dietary exposure to toxic metals

Test Code: DDFM

Also Known As:


Specimen Type: Stool

Preparation: Ship to lab Monday-Thursday only. Please read all of the directions and the collection procedures prior to starting test. Please wait three days after usage or consumption of fish and shellfish, oyster shell calcium and dolomite supplements, barium enemas, bentonite clay, mineral or castor oil, rectal suppositories, bismuth-containing medications (e.g. Pepto Bismol), antacids.

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


Analysis of elements in feces provides a comprehensive evaluation of environmental exposure, potential for accumulation in the body (Hg), and possibly endogenous detoxification of potentially toxic metals. For many toxic elements such as mercury, cadmium, lead, antimony and uranium, biliary excretion into the feces is the primary natural route of elimination from the body. 


Test Includes:  Antimony, Arsenic, Beryllium, Bismuth, Cadmium, Copper, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Platinum, Thallium, Tungsten, Uranium
