Chromium test

Home chromium testing kit for toxicity, poisoning and contamination in water and the human body.

Test urine for chromium levels if you are concerned about pollution exposure.

Toxic effects of heavy metal contamination can be poisonous, ingestion is dangerous and can lead to illness and in some case be fatal.

You could be suffering from poisoning symptoms, use this simple home health check exposure levels.

We also offer specialist heavy metal testing kits for many other heavy metals.

Or try a hair heavy metal test for accurate laboratory results with dietary recommendations.

Toxicity heavy metal poisoning symptoms

Breathing in high levels of chromium can cause:

  • Irritation to the nose, such as runny nose, nosebleeds, and ulcers and holes in the nasal septum

  • Ingesting large amounts of chromium can cause stomach upsets and ulcers, convulsions

  • Kidney and liver damage

  • Death

Skin contact with certain chromium compounds can cause skin ulcers.

Some people are extremely sensitive to chromium or chromium (III). Allergic reactions consisting of severe redness and swelling of the skin have been noted.

Several studies have shown that chromium compounds can increase the risk of lung cancer.

Animal studies have also shown an increased risk of cancer. The World Health Organization (WHO) has determined that chromium is a human carcinogen.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has determined that certain chromium compounds are known to cause cancer in humans. The EPA has determined that chromium in air is a human carcinogen.

The exact level where chromium becomes toxic is not clear. The recommended therapeutic value is between 50 - 200 ppm, however, this is applicable only to organic chromium that the body absorbs and retains and therefore not usually excreted and found in urine.

The toxic form of chromium is inorganic chromium that the body does not absorb and therefore eliminated in urine. It is this inorganic chromium that requires testing and its presence should be 0.
