Bisphenol A (Postmenopausal)

Optimal Result: 1.5 - 4.5 ug/g Cr.

BPA is an endocrine disrupting chemical (EDC) derived from plastics used for making bottles, wraps for foods, and linings for food cans. BPA is not retained in the body for a prolonged period o f time and is rapidly excreted into urine.

BPA acts as an EDC by binding to a activating both membrane and nuclear estrogen receptors in a manner similar to estradiol. Thus by mimicking the actions of endogenous estrogens, high levels of BPA can contribute to symptoms of estrogen dominance.

What does it mean if your Bisphenol A (Postmenopausal) result is too low?

A low BPA level suggests that the individual has had limited contact with BPA-containing products, which is generally considered positive for health as it reduces potential exposure to this endocrine-disrupting chemical.

Lower BPA exposure is associated with a decreased risk of potential health issues linked to BPA, such as hormone disruption, cardiovascular problems, and diabetes.

It is particularly important for pregnant women, infants, and young children to have low BPA levels since they are more vulnerable to the adverse effects of BPA exposure.

What does it mean if your Bisphenol A (Postmenopausal) result is too high?

High urinary levels of BPA indicate recent exposure to plastics that released excessive amounts of BPA in to food or beverages consumed in the past 24-48 hr.

High BPA levels have been associated with increased risks for many different health issues, including diabetes, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. When BPA levels are elevated, identification of its source and reducing exposure is worth considering.
