Optimal Result: 0 - 2 µg/g creatinine.

Perchlorate (PERC) can result from the exposure to this chemical which is used in the production of rocket fuel, missiles, fireworks, flares, explosives, fertilizers, cleansers, and bleach. Studies show that perchlorate is often found in water supplies. Perchlorate has also been found in food, including cow’s milk, eggs, vegetables, and fruit.

Perchlorate’s main target organ is the thyroid gland. Perchlorate inhibits the thyroid’s uptake of iodine. Iodine is required as a building block for the synthesis of thyroid hormone. Perchlorate’s inhibition of iodide uptake could lead to hypothyroidism. The thyroid hormone plays a critical role in the neurological development of the fetus, so perchlorate exposure in pregnancy could result in neurodevelopmental effects. The EPA has also labeled perchlorate a likely human carcinogen.

What does it mean if your Perchlorate (PERC) result is too high?

People that are high in perchlorate can use a reverse osmosis water treatment system (or ion exchange) to remove the chemical from their water supply.
