Purpose of running this test:

The Hepatic Detox Profile Test is used to determine the pressure under which your liver is functioning to address detoxification, and if extra liver support may be useful. In some cases, it reflects your ­­­exposure to toxins and your level of excretion of these toxins. In other cases, the toxins may be sequestered in your body, or you may have difficulty with the detox pathways, so your test results may come back normal even though you need liver support. So, a value that is out of balance is meaningful and suggests a need for additional support, but a normal level may not rule out your need for liver support, or suggest that you have no toxins present in your system. Particularly if your toxic metal tests show high levels of material, and/or a MAP test indicates that organic toxins are present, but this test does not show elevations, you still need additional support for toxin excretion.

I have seen cases in which values on a Hepatic Detox profile were consistently in the normal range, yet toxin excretion on HMT, UTM and FMT along with clinical symptoms, suggested issues with toxic metals. As I have described in the past, chronic viral infection can allow toxins to be sequestered that are not excreted until those viral infections have been addressed. Viral antibody titers can be run through your doctor to assess this possibility.

Result This table contains the rationale behind my suggestions. These suggestions are for your consideration. Defer your choices to your own health care practitioner, as always.
Imbalances in D glucaric & mercapturic acids Consider Liver Support nucleotide blend and MTHFR A1298C Liver Support capsules to support your liver. Also consider using GSH.If your results on this test are within the normal range, yet high levels of toxins are present on other toxic metal testing or on a MAP test, then consider MetalAway, Ion Transport compound and DetoxAway to help to encourage excretion. However, when you are attempting to increase excretion of toxins, work with and defer to your own health care professional.

If viral issues are a concern, consider having your doctor run a range of viral antibody titers that include IgM and IgG levels for Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Chicken Pox, Herpes Viruses 1, 2 and 6, Hepatitis, CMV and EBV. Immune support for viral concerns can include T cell and B cell support capsules, Moducare, and the Metals nucleotide blends, along with specific IMFs. As always when working on detoxification, work with and defer to your own doctor.

Related Tests to Run

Toxic metal tests, including HMT, UTM/UEE and FMT. MAP testing should also be considered.

If needed, run viral antibody titers.
