Urine Toxicology Screen

Urine Toxicology screen is used to rule out unknown heavy metal toxicity

You may have heard of doctors performing a urine toxicology screen in cases of drug overdose or poisoning. However, at the Health & Vitality Center, the term “urine toxicology screen” is mainly used to refer to a diagnostic test for heavy metal overload or toxicity. Dr. Shiva Lalezar – a holistic doctor in Los Angeles specializing in integrative and functional medicine – utilizes urine toxicology screens as part of a battery of diagnostic tests to evaluate your overall health and wellness. Los Angeles residents are well acquainted with toxic substances because of the blanket of smog that hangs over the city; the drinking water is also laden with toxins.

How does the test work?

You simply provide a urine sample. Dr. Lalezar then sends the sample to a specialized lab to analyze it for a variety of toxic heavy metals, including lead, mercury, and cadmium.

In which medical conditions might a urine toxicology screen be a useful diagnostic test?

  • Heavy Metal Burden
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Fibromyalgia
  • Depression, Mood Swings, Irritability

Treatment Options

Based on the results of this diagnostic test, we may recommend the following treatments:

  • Chelation Therapy
  • Custom Diet and Exercise Plans/Lifestyle Modification
  • Allergy Elimination Diet
  • Intravenous Vitamin Therapy
  • Nutritional Supplements
