MycoTOX Profile by Great Plains Laboratory

Mycotoxins are some of the most prevalent toxins in the environment. Mycotoxins are metabolites produced by fungi like mold, which can infest buildings, vehicles, and foods. A majority of mycotoxin exposures are through food ingestion or airborne exposure. In the European Union, 20% of all grains harvested have been found to be contaminated with mycotoxins. Unfortunately, mycotoxins are resistant to heat and many processing procedures.

Specimen: Urine

Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet. Inner wall materials of buildings, wall paper, fiberglass insulation, ceiling tiles, and gypsum support are all good surfaces for fungi to colonize. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment causing symptoms related to many different chronic diseases.

Symptoms and Conditions associated with Mycotoxin Exposure include:

  • Fever
  • Pneumonia-like symptoms
  • Heart disease
  • Rheumatic disease
  • Asthma
  • Sinusitis
  • Cancer
  • Memory loss
  • Vision loss
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Skin rashes
  • Depression
  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Liver damage

Common Sources of Mold Exposure in the Home

  • Window Sills and Doors
  • Plumbing
  • Bathrooms
  • Closets
  • Fireplaces and Chimneys
  • Laundry Rooms
  • Basements
  • Air Conditioning Systems
  • Roofs
  • Refrigerators
  • Foods

Mold can enter homes through open windows, vents, doorways, and heating and air conditioning systems. Mold grows well on organic products such as paper, wood, cardboard, and ceiling tiles. Mold can also grow on insulation, drywall, wallpaper, carpet, fabric, and upholstery. Mold can be controlled by cleaning and drying after water intrusion; having proper ventilation for showers, laundry, and cooking areas; making sure that windows, roofs, and pipes are free of leaks; and by controlling humidity levels.

With the new MycoTOX Profile by Great Plains Laboratory, you can identify mycotoxin exposure and then work with a practitioner to start appropriate detoxification protocols.

Advantages of the MycoTOX Profile

  • The MycoTOX Profile screens for 11 different mycotoxins from 40 species of mold in one urine sample.
  • The MycoTOX Profile is the most comprehensive and competitively priced mycotoxin test available.
  • The MycoTOX Profile uses the power of advanced mass spectrometry (MS/MS), which is necessary to detect lower levels of these fungal toxins. This test is optimal for follow up testing to ensure that detoxification therapies have been successful.
