"Environmental Impact on Stem Cells, Aging, and Chronic Illness"
Interpreting Urine and Blood Levels for Toxic Metal Exposure and Assessment: Part 1
The CDC National Report is a database of urine and blood levels for approximately 300 chemicals including 22 measurements of toxic metals. Utilizing this database as a reference range, we will discuss how to interpret patient's non-provoked urine baseline testing to infer current exposure or risk for long-term low-level exposure. When current exposure is suspected, we will review sources of exposure that clinicians need to be able to explore with their patients.
