Zirconium is one of the elements measured in hair element testing offered by Doctor's Data.
This test is designed to assess the levels of various elements, including both toxic and essential ones, in a person's hair.
Zirconium testing can be valuable for several purposes, such as evaluating toxic element exposure, assessing the effects of excessive fish consumption, and investigating conditions like alopecia, depression, fatigue, malabsorption, hypertension, and impaired health.
Testing for zirconium in hair analysis is not a common practice in standard hair mineral analysis. Hair analysis typically focuses on the assessment of essential and toxic elements like calcium, magnesium, zinc, lead, mercury, etc., to evaluate a person's nutritional status and exposure to harmful substances.
Zirconium is not considered an essential element for the human body, and there is limited clinical evidence to suggest a specific health significance associated with zirconium levels in hair. Therefore, it is not a routine element included in hair mineral analysis profiles.
In some cases, zirconium levels in hair might be mentioned in research studies, especially those exploring the relationship between exposure to certain environmental factors and hair element levels. For example, a study mentioned in the search results indicated an association between zirconium levels in hair and a specific population's exposure, but this is not part of routine health assessments.
If there is a specific reason to test for zirconium exposure, it would typically be done through other means, such as blood or urine tests, and would be guided by a healthcare professional based on individual circumstances or potential occupational or environmental exposures.
