The Comprehensive Urine Elements Profile measures urinary flow of 15 nutrient elements and 20 toxic metals. These include “classic” toxics such as lead, mercury, and arsenic, as well as elements used in the medical, aerospace, nuclear and high-tech electronics industries. This is an ideal test for patients suspected of toxic metal exposure as well as potential nutrient mineral wasting.
