Find out with ANY LAB TEST NOW® Brookings SD

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® Brookings if you are concerned with toxic exposure, or need to monitor your employees in line with OSHA regulations. 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

TESTIMONIALS

“Over the past 3 years, I have struggled with getting my hormones balanced.  As a result, I have had to have blood work run as often as every week at Any Lab Test Now.  Everyone there has always been so kind and helpful, even on days when I walk in on the verge of tears.  I have to specifically commend Laura on how prompt, professional and compassionate she has always been.  I would recommend Any Lab Test Now to anyone who needs blood work done!”
