Analysis of elements in feces provides a comprehensive evaluation of environmental exposure, potential for accumulation in the body (Hg), and possibly endogenous detoxification of potentially toxic metals. For many toxic elements such as mercury, cadmium, lead, antimony and uranium, biliary excretion into the feces is the primary natural route of elimination from the body.
Test Includes: Antimony, Arsenic, Beryllium, Bismuth, Cadmium, Copper, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Platinum, Thallium, Tungsten, Uranium
