Toxic Heavy Metals (Urine)

Exposure to toxic levels of many different heavy metals can have serious consequences for your health.  This is especially true if you do not realize you are being exposed.  Heavy metal toxicity causes damage to lung, kidney, liver, or brain functions.  Exposure to toxic heavy metals may also damage blood vessels and impair the body’s ability to produce red and white blood cells.  Many heavy metals are even recognized to cause certain types of cancer.

The Toxic Heavy Metals (Urine) test will analyze your urine sample for the presence or absence of twenty-one (21) different toxic heavy metals.  The report you receive will identify whether the levels detected are within normal limits, or may be cause for concern.

This test requires a standard urine sample that can be collected at the Any Lab Test Now store location of your choice.
