Essential Nutrient and Toxic Elements Testing

MosaicDX offers a number of options for assessing nutrient and toxic (heavy metals) elements, these include urine, hair, stool, whole blood and red blood cell. Heavy metals can be toxic to organ systems when they accumulate in the body and may disrupt the balance of essential nutrients. A number of variables impact which sample type is most applicable including toxicokinetics, dose, length of exposure, route of exposure and half-life. Multiple sample types allow for the practitioner to choose the most clinically appropriate option.

What patients might benefit from Heavy Metals Testing?

Sign and symptoms vary for each type of metal and range in severity based on an individual’s exposure, symptoms could include:

  • Weakness
  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Chills, low body temperature
  • Arrhythmia
  • Anemia
