About Our Nickel, Urine test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This urine test monitors exposure to nickel for toxicity. Nickel exposure is commonly evidenced by contact dermatitis. Nickel exposure may also affect pulmonary tissues, as seen by x-ray.
Nickel toxicity has been linked with central nervous system (CNS) depressant effects.
Nickel is a component of many alloys and it is often used in metal plating and in the production of numerous electrical devices and in electronics. Exposure most often occurs in the industrial environment either through the inhalation of nickel dust or dermal contact with nickel compounds.
Nickel toxicity is associated with allergy, asthma, urticaria, erythema multiforme, contact dermatitis, and hand eczema.
