Heavy Metals

Spread the love

A heavy metals panel is a group of tests that measures the quantity of specific potentially toxic metals in the blood, urine or, more rarely, in the hair or other body tissue or fluid.

A low level of a heavy metal in the blood does not necessarily mean that excessive exposure has not occurred.

Very low levels of many heavy metals may be present in the blood and urine of apparently healthy people because these metals are present throughout our environment.

Recommendations for safe levels of heavy metals depend on the age of the person and may change over time as more information about their safety emerges.
