APA ASSAY (Checks for abnormal immune system response with Fibromyalgia) 15. Testing for sensitivity to: Silicone, Silicates (silicon dioxide), Polyvinylpyrrolidone, Tin/stannous chloride, Titanium dioxide, Petroleum byproducts of Xylene, Toluene, Benzene, Latex, Phenol, Formaldehyde, Vinyl chloride, Green #5, Blue #2, Violet #2, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, Aluminum. Genetic Testing through for MTHFR genetic variants and methylation issues is highly suggested as about half or more of us with breast implant illness test positive for MTHFR which affects our ability to detox.IRON AND FERRITIN TEST (Checks for iron derangement) 12. My MTHFR status accounted for some of my own particular health picture including my level of toxicity from breast implants and heavy metals and my very low B12 which causes many of our symptoms.
In fact, the cohesive gel implants seem to be the worst implants because they contain more aggressive chemicals used in making the silicone cohesive.
There are no definitive test(s) to prove that your breast implants are the cause of your symptoms and illness but the following medical tests have been used to investigate common problems in us caused by breast implants, silicone, silicone chemicals, heavy metals and biotoxin from fungus and other infections however many women show just inside normal ranges in regard to testing and are still very ill and symptomatic: Medical Lab Tests 1. MRI WITHOUT GANDOLINIUM CONTRAST WHICH CAUSES TOXICITY IN US OR ULTRASOUND TO DETECT LEAKS/RUPTURES (We advise against Mammograms due to their ability to rupture breast implants) Other Tests 1.
ANA ANTINUCLEAR ANTIBODY (Checks autoimmune markers) 2. The Silicone Hypersensitivity Panel has existed for years and is once again gaining popularity but it should not be used to rule out breast implant illness as results vary from woman to woman and ingredients vary from implant to implant.
CBC LIPIDS (Checks red, white blood cells, platelets, anemia, infection) 3. CMP COMPREHENSIVE METABOLIC PANEL (Checks glucose, electrolytes, kidney and liver) 5. THYROID – TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Reverse T3, TPO Ab and TG Ab 7. ADRENAL HORMONES (Cortisol, DHEA-S, Estradiol, Estrogen, Progesterone, Pregnenlone, Testosterone Free and Total, Sex Hormone Binding Globuline) 9. INFECTIONS SUCH AS EBV, LYME, H-PYLORI, MYCOPLASMA, INTRACELLULAR, COCKSACKIE, CYTOMEGALOVIRUS, HERPES ETC 18. It is a panel of 19 items, including materials commonly used in breast implants, and related possible irritants.
B12 AND FOLATE DEFICIENCY – (Checks for low B12 and low folate) 10. Please note this test does NOT test for silicone levels within your body, only sensitivity to it.
In addition, implants are made of silicone which is a chemical soup of dangerous toxins and heavy metals that when implanted in the body begin breaking down and circulating particulates of silicone and neurotoxic, cytotoxic, carcinogenic chemicals and toxic heavy metals contaminating tissues, organs, glands and harming body systems.
