A heavy metal panel (test) is a group of tests used to measure the quantity of specific and potentially toxic metals in the body.
While some traces of heavy metals are normal for body function, significant concentrations of any heavy metal can be irritating or damaging to the body. Common toxic metals include, but are not limited to: lead, mercury and arsenic.
Moderate to large quantities of heavy metals can accumulate in the kidneys, liver, bones, and brain. Some metals are considered carcinogenic, which could lead to an increased risk of developing cancer, and some can affect the body’s ability to produce healthy blood cells.
Heavy metal testing is conducted to monitor the efficacy of chelation therapy.
