Heavy Metals

HEAVY-METALS

Too much of a good thing can be toxic.  Have you been exposed to high levels of heavy metals?

Find out with ANY LAB TEST NOW®

We are exposed to natural elements every day, including metals.  Our bodies need a certain amount of these substances to survive and regulate bodily functions, including chromium, iron and zinc.  However, too much of a good thing can lead to toxicity.

Heavy Metals Testing is an option at ANY LAB TEST NOW® if you are concerned with toxic exposure. Any metal in the periodic table can be tested for, although the most common metals tested for include:

Heavy metal toxicity can result in damage to the vital organs, neurological and muscular degeneration, cancer, allergies and even death.  Toxicity occurs when the body cannot metabolize the amount of metal substances ingested or absorbed.  The metals then accumulate in the soft tissues.

Occupational exposure is the most common way people are exposed to heavy metals, and employers take precautionary steps to test and monitor employees that may be exposed to protect their health and safety.  There are a number of other ways people are exposed to heavy metals, including but not limited to:

  • Occupational exposure
  • Environmental releases in the air, water and soil
  • Intentional poisoning
  • Living in or remodeling old homes
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Contaminated soil
  • Ingestion
  • Taking metal-based supplements at unnecessary levels

 

If you are concerned and are interested in heavy metals testing or are an employer that needs a solution for testing employees, call your local ANY LAB TEST NOW location for assistance.

  2. LEAD EXPOSURE BLOOD TEST

    LEAD EXPOSURE BLOOD TEST

    $75.00

    DESCRIPTION:

    Lead is a toxic metal that is naturally occurring in the earth’s crust. Lead and lead compounds have been used in manufacturing compounds such as paint, fuel, batteries and cosmetics. Some of the most common sources of lead exposure in the United States come from Lead-based paints found in older homes, drinking water and pottery or crystals used for eating.

    Occupational exposure to lead in the workplace can also occur. Here are some top work activities that may put you at risk for exposure:

    • Welding (old painted metal)
    • Battery manufacturing and recycling
    • Lead Soldering
    • Indoor Firing ranges
    • Bridge, tunnel or highway construction
    • Home renovation

    Anyone working in these industries may also expose others to lead via carrying lead dust home. Young children and unborn children of pregnant mothers are especially susceptible to secondary exposure. The dust may be ingested or inhaled.

    Lead can affect your body neurologically, as well as affecting major organs such as your stomach, liver, kidneys, muscles and the reproductive system. Here are some symptoms of lead exposure:

    Fatigue

    Irritability

    Hearing loss

    Seizures

    Nausea

    Anemia

    Indigestion

    Reduced sperm count

    Miscarriage

    Chronic exposure to lead can cause cerebral edema, coma and convulsions.

  3. MERCURY EXPOSURE TEST (24 HOUR, URINE)

    MERCURY EXPOSURE TEST (24 HOUR, URINE)

    $119.00

    DESCRIPTION:

    Mercury is an element in the earth’s crust. Pure Mercury is a liquid metal that volatizes easily. Mercury has traditionally been used to make products like thermometers, switches and some light bulbs. Mercury can also be found in many rocks including coal. Burning coal releases Mercury into the environment. According to the EPA, coal-burning power plants are the largest human-caused source of Mercury emissions to the air in the United States. Burning hazardous wastes, producing chlorine, breaking Mercury products, and spilling Mercury, as well as the improper treatment and disposal of products or wastes containing Mercury, can also release it into the environment.

    Mercury compounds are manufactured in small amounts for uses such as chemical and pharmaceutical applications. Larger quantities of these compounds are generated as byproducts from pollution control activities at gold mines or in waste.

  4.  CADMIUM EXPOSURE TEST (24 HOUR, URINE)

    CADMIUM EXPOSURE TEST (24 HOUR, URINE)

    $139.00

    DESCRIPTION:
    Cadmium is a metal found in natural deposits such as ores. Cadmium is used primarily for metal plating and in coating operations, including transportation equipment, machinery, baking enamels, photography and televisions. It is also used in nickel-cadmium solar batteries and pigments. Cadmium can also be found in contaminated drinking water. The major sources of cadmium in drinking water are corrosion of galvanized pipes, erosion of natural deposits, discharge from metal refineries and runoff from waste batteries and paints.

  5.  CHROMIUM EXPOSURE TEST (SERUM)

    CHROMIUM EXPOSURE TEST (SERUM)

    $229.00

    DESCRIPTION:
    Chromium  is an element and can exist in several different forms. Trivalent Chromium, also known as “Chromium III” is naturally occurring and is essential for good health. The normal intake from eating foods that are high in natural chromium is 70-80 micrograms per day and is considered safe. “Hexavalent” chromium, also known as “Chromium VI” does not occur naturally, but is produced by certain industrial processes. Hexavalent Chromium is the most toxic form of chromium and is shown to cause lung cancer when people are exposed to high air levels for long time periods.

    Chromium is mined for use in steel and other metal products. Many chromium-containing compounds are used for plating, manufacturing paints and dyes, tanning leather and preserving wood. In the home or office the less toxic forms of chromium are used to make flooring materials, recording tapes, stainless steel, chrome-plated items and copy machine toner.

    People can be exposed to chromium by breathing chromium dust or fumes. This is the route of exposure that is of greatest concern. Most human exposure to chromium occurs when people eat fresh vegetables, meats, fish, and poultry.  Drinking water is not normally a major source of exposure. Plants can absorb chromium and it can be passed to those who eat the plants. Contact with contaminated soils can result in exposure to chromium. Exposure can be reduced by thorough washing of exposed skin and clothing to remove soil residues. Chromium can pass through the skin, but this is probably not a major route of exposure.
