Heavy Metals, Mercury, Aluminum and Kidney Disease: Should You Get Tested?

Heavy Metals, Mercury, Aluminum and Kidney Disease: Should You Get Tested?

Robert Galarowicz for Healthy Kidney Inc. back again with some more helpful information regarding kidney disease and what you can do about it. Today I want to talk about a topic many people are rightfully concerned about in this day and age…toxic heavy metals!

Toxic heavy metals have sadly become a part of the world around us due to things like pollution, corroded pipes, excess mercury in fish, outdated lead paints in certain buildings and other types of contamination due to routine exposure to things as mundane and seemingly harmless as deodorant or cosmetics.

Some of the worst culprits among heavy metals are lead, mercury, aluminum and, surprisingly, platinum. It’s important to get tested for heavy metal toxicity even if you don’t have kidney disease, as it can lead to impaired kidney function over time. If, however, you do have kidney disease and are also in an environment where you’re especially prone to heavy metal exposure, you would definitely benefit from getting your toxic heavy metal levels checked, as these are substances that can easily build up without the at-risk party even being aware of many of the related symptoms until it is far too late.

You can find out more information about how pollutants impact kidney health by navigating to the ‘pollution & kidney disease’ section of our blog here:
