My Functional Medicine doctor has ordered a test to determine if I have any heay metal toxicity. I will report back my results!
Here is the test
After my first urine void in the morning I took 3 tablets of DMSA (Dimercapto succinic acid). This is a sulfydryl-containing substance which binds efficiently to mercury, lead, cadmium and zinc.
Then I collect urine for 6 hours and put it in this orange container. I measure the total amount of urine in the 6 hour time period and take a small sample and send it off FEDEX to the company! The lab is www.doctorsdata.com
