(1→3)-β-D-glucan is a cell wall constituent of most medically important fungi including Candida and Aspergillus. Breast implant illness occurs in both saline and silicone implants and is a very multifaceted illness.
For both saline and silicone breast implants a strong and immediate response to the silicone shell directly after implantation may be predicated by your genes specifically HLA B27, HLA DR52 and HLA DR53 which are genes associated with being ill in the first year after implantation and a higher sensitivity to silicone.
CBC LIPIDS (Checks red, white blood cells, platelets, anemia, infection) 3. CMP COMPREHENSIVE METABOLIC PANEL (Checks glucose, electrolytes, kidney and liver) 5. THYROID – TSH, Free T3, Free T4, Reverse T3, TPO Ab and TG Ab 7. ADRENAL HORMONES (Cortisol, DHEA-S, Estradiol, Estrogen, Progesterone, Pregnenlone, Testosterone Free and Total, Sex Hormone Binding Globuline) 9. Please note this test does NOT test for silicone levels within your body, only sensitivity to it.
B12 AND FOLATE DEFICIENCY – (Checks for low B12 and low folate) 10. APA ASSAY (Checks for abnormal immune system response with Fibromyalgia) 15. Testing for sensitivity to: Silicone, Silicates (silicon dioxide), Polyvinylpyrrolidone, Tin/stannous chloride, Titanium dioxide, Petroleum byproducts of Xylene, Toluene, Benzene, Latex, Phenol, Formaldehyde, Vinyl chloride, Green #5, Blue #2, Violet #2, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans, Aluminum. Genetic Testing through for MTHFR genetic variants and methylation issues is highly suggested as about half or more of us with breast implant illness test positive for MTHFR which affects our ability to detox.
