Do you work in a field or have a hobby that involves working with a lot of heavy machinery? Are you concerned it may be negatively impacting your health overall? Are you unsure what you could do about it? Toxins and heavy metals testing is a diagnostic tool that can analyze specific levels of hazardous toxins and metals in your body. If you are concerned about the levels of heavy metals you have been exposed to, schedule a consultation with Dr. Negin of Infinite Wellness Vitality Center in California to learn more about your diagnostic or treatment options!
What Is Toxins and Heavy Metals Testing?
Toxins and heavy metals testing refers to a collection of tests that are effective diagnostic tools for analyzing and measuring levels of metals in the bloodstream. There are some toxins or metals that are more dangerous than others, and there are some people who are more susceptible than others. People who work closely with heavy machinery, whether for work or for hobby, are typically more likely to be at risk of acute or chronic exposure of dangerous metals.
While these toxins may manifest themselves in nearly undetectable ways, common signs or symptoms of metal poisoning include:
- Abdominal pain
- Behavioral changes
- Brain fog or memory loss
- Kidney damage
- Liver damage
- Malformed or weak bones
- Mees lines (horizontal lines on nails)
- Nervous system complications, such as numbness, tingling or weakness in the hands or feet
- Pregnancy complications
It is important to remember symptoms and toxins will affect people differently. If you have concerns related to your possible exposure to dangerous metals, schedule your consultation with us in California.
What Could I Expect from Testing?
Toxins and heavy metals testing is commonly performed using a blood or urine sample. The metals and toxins will vary for each person or test. Tests for multiple toxins may be combined or completed individually.
Toxins or heavy metals commonly tested include:
It is important to remember that some toxins analyzed are necessary for proper human function. For example, you need iron and zinc for optimal and healthy functioning. However, too high of any levels can potentially be harmful. Toxins and heavy metals testing helps ensure levels are normal and safe.
Should I Consider Toxins and Heavy Metals Testing?
While it is never a bad idea to take a proactive approach to your health, toxins and heavy metals testing is recommended on a varied level. The necessity of testing may vary based on:
- Clinical symptoms
- Suspected exposure
Examples of occupations that are commonly recommended for this testing include construction workers or those who work in radiator repair shops. It is always better to be safe than sorry, and we recommend a consultation with Dr. Negin in California if you have any suspicions at all regarding your exposure to toxins.
