Copper Exposure Testing

Copper is a commonly-used element due largely to its high thermal and electrical conductivity. While it’s normal for an adult to have 50 to 80 milligrams of copper present in the body, copper toxicity exists when these levels get too high. Some common symptoms of this disorder include:

  • Hypotension
  • Heart disease
  • Premenstrual tension
  • Postpartum depression
  • Autism

Here at Test Smartly Labs, we have experience in matching symptoms with the right testing solutions. When you work with us, we ask the right questions to ensure your copper exposure testing yields the most accurate and helpful results.

Exposure Risks

The trouble with diagnosing copper toxicity is that it can get into the body in the most inconspicuous ways. You can be exposed to copper through:

  • Breathing
  • Drinking
  • Eating
  • Skin contact with soil

Most copper compounds form a strong attachment to dust and dirt, so it’s easy to see how it can be easily breathed in. If you think you may have been exposed, call today to learn more about our copper exposure testing services can help you and your doctor get to the root of your problems.
