How to compare the results of Oligoscan with other laboratory tests?

In short, not at all. The Oligoscan measures intracellularly. Blood tests show metals which have circulated recently. Metals are dumped within a few days from the blood stream into the tissues. Blood can therefore only be used in acute situations for toxic metals. The amount of minerals and trace elements is kept fairly constant in blood. Many people with muscle cramps often have a normal magnesium level in serum, also if the magnesium content is measured in red blood cells. The Oligoscan in these cases, shows a magnesium deficiency.

Urinalysis shows to what extent the body can excrete metals. In a normal spontaneous urine sample almost nothing is excreted. Only after the body is provoked increased metal concentrations are found in the urine. This is done with a challenge test for toxic metals. This is a valuable test that shows in what amount metals are present in the extracellular environment. The Oligoscan measures intracellularly. The challenge test and Oligoscan complement each other completely in this aspect.

A hair analysis shows which metals were present during the last months. But if a body cannot detoxify well, low amounts of metals will be found in hair. This is called false-negative results. Blood, urine or hair analysis let you and your patient wait for two weeks, while the Oligoscan provides results immediately.
