DiagnosTechs now offers the first-ever noninvasive salivary Toxic Metals and Elements test in the nation. This laboratory analysis of salivary and urinary elements is performed by highly-sensitive, gold-standard-quality ICP-Mass Spectroscopy Triple Quad technology.
What is the difference between testing saliva and urine? Would one be better than the other?
Saliva test screen for which elements and concentrations can be present and circulating throughout your body tissues now, including in saliva and other biological fluids. By contrast, Urine testing specifically indicates which elements and concentrations are being eliminated naturally from your body.
These two separate tests demonstrate different—but equally important—information to your practitioner that can be contributing to your unexplained symptoms. When these tests are used together, your provider can help create a more comprehensive long-term health and treatment plan for you.
