Myco-Tox Panel From Great Plains Lab:
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 foodstuffs. 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.
Fungi are able to grow on almost any surface, especially if the environment is warm and wet. Inner wall materials of buildings, wall paper, fiber glass insulation, ceiling tiles, and gypsum support are all good surfaces for fungi to colonize. These fungi then release mycotoxins into the environment, causing symptoms of many different chronic diseases. Diseases and symptoms linked to 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, and liver damage.
With the GPL-MycoTOX Profile, we can identify mycotoxin exposures and make recommendations for detoxification treatments that have been effective.
The MycoTox Profile evaluates for 11 common toxins from mold: Aflatoxin M1, Ochratoxin A, Sterigmatocystin, Roridin E, Verrucarin A, Enniatin B1, Zearalenone, Gliotoxin, Mycophenolic Acid, Dihydrocitrinone, and Chaetoglobosin A. The species of molds which produce these toxins include Aspergillus, Penicillum, Stachybotrys and Fusarium.
