    Comprehensive Blood Elements

    $350.00

    Whole blood metals are the standard for diagnosis of lead, mercury or other metal toxicity or poisoning, and are also used to assess recent or ongoing exposure to potentially toxic elements. Serum elements are used to assess the status of key elements and electrolytes that have important functions in the extracellular fluid compartment of blood. Whole Blood and Serum Elements tests are available separately or as part of the Comprehensive Blood Elements profile.

    This test is useful for

    • Alopecia
    • Anemia
    • Bone Density
    • Cardiovascular Disease
    • Depression
    • Dermatitis or Poor Wound Healing
    • Detoxification Therapy
    • Fatigue

    • Hypertension
    • Immune Dysfunction
    • Impaired Glucose Tolerance
    • Inflammation
    • Kidney Function
    • Nutritional Deficiencies
    • Parkinson’s-like Symptoms
    • Sexual Impotence or Decreased Testosterone Production
    • Vision Problems

    Fecal Metals

    $350.00

    Fecal elemental analysis provides a direct indication of dietary exposure to toxic metals and indirect information about the potential for toxic metal burden. Chronic, low-level assimilation of toxic metals can result in accumulation in the body. For many toxic metals, fecal (biliary) excretion is the primary natural route of elimination from the body. Specimen collection is convenient for the patient and only requires a single-step procedure. Elements are measured by ICP-MS and expressed on a dry weight basis to eliminate variability related to water content of the specimen.

    This test is useful for

    • Dietary Exposure to Toxic Elements
    • Mercury Exposure from Dental Amalgams

    Hair Elements

    $185.00

    Hair Elements analysis provides information regarding recent and ongoing exposure to potentially toxic metals, especially methylmercury and arsenic, and time-averaged status of specific nutrient elements. This noninvasive screening test requires only .25 grams of hair. Doctor’s Data offers a Hair Elements profile containing essential and toxic elements and a Hair Toxic Element Exposure profile containing an expanded lineup of toxic metals.

    This test is useful for

    • Toxic Element Exposure
    • Excessive Fish Consumption
    • Alopecia
    • Depression
    • Fatigue
    • Malabsorption
    • Hypertension
    • Impaired Glucose Tolerance
    • Kidney Function
    • Parkinson’s-like Symptoms
    • Sexual Impotence or Decreased Testosterone Production
    • Vision Problems

    Red Blood Cell (RBC) Elements

    $326.00

    Red blood cell (RBC) elements tests are used to assess the status of essential elements with important intracellular functions, such as magnesium, copper and zinc. Deficiencies or excesses of these essential elements affect numerous metabolic processes. RBC element analysis is also useful for the assessment of ongoing or recent exposure to specific toxic metals, such as arsenic, cadmium, lead, methylmercury and thallium, that accumulate preferentially in erythrocytes.

    This test is useful for

    • Alopecia
    • Anemia
    • Bone Density
    • Cardiovascular Disease
    • Depression
    • Dermatitis or Poor Wound Healing
    • Detoxification Therapy
    • Fatigue
    • Gastrointestinal Symptoms
    • Hypertension
    • Inflammation
    • Immune Function
    • Impaired Glucose Tolerance
    • Kidney Function

    Whole Blood Elements

    $336.00

    Whole blood metals are the standard for diagnosis of lead, mercury or other metal toxicity or poisoning, and are also used to assess recent or ongoing exposure to potentially toxic elements. Whole blood analysis measures total element levels that circulate extracellularly in serum/plasma, as well as intracellularly within blood cells.

    This test is useful for

    • Alopecia
    • Anemia
    • Bone Density
    • Cardiovascular Disease
    • Depression
    • Dermatitis or Poor Wound Healing
