Can anyone tell me if only testing a urine sample will result in a misdiagnosis of mercury poisoning (especially elemental)? I swear I have mercury poisoning, but the lab test was negative.

  • Mercury can be stored in your tissues and will not show up in a blood test. You need to do a test where you take DMSA which will pull the mercury from your tissue and put in to your blood where it will be processed by kidneys and excreted in your urine. The urine is collected over the course of 24 hours and sent off to a lab where they will determine just how bad it is. That's a brief idea of how it works. Mercury also holds other heavy metals which will be identified with this test.Sue Vit.

I have mercury poisoning too. I've read that testing is not always accurate, as everyone is different. Some people get rid of it through the urine more readily than others. People who have little showing in their hair are often autistic. It settles into your tissues, binds with molecules within your body and then travels all over, settling into your brain, your heart, your lungs, digestive tract, testes, and on and on. It messes with your endocrine system, your hormones, your adrenal glands, etc. Do you have 'silver amalgam' fillings? They are made of 50% mercury... the worst kind. If you do, you will benefit from reading "Silver Dental Fillings - The Toxic Time Bomb" by Sam Ziff. Also go to http://www.iaomt.org (the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) They can provide you with articles, and dentists that can help you to remove your fillings safely. The book lists all of the the different types of mercury, what it does to your body, and what you can do to help yourself. Once your fillings are out, there are things you can do to coax the mercury from your body... but it will take time. Excellent nutrition is a must! And if you can see a physician that is a specialist in mercury poisoning, it would help you. There are herbal/natural things that you can do that are better, IMHO than medicines... but you will have to do your own research. On that note, check out this site that will help to eliminate parasites... a common side effect of mercury poisoning. http://www.buzzle.com/articles/body-cleansing-human-parasite-cleanse.htmlGood luck to you. You are not alone!
