Hi! We seem to be showing up on the same boards these days.
Other than the DMPS challenge test, my dr hasn't suggested any kind of chelation therapy. Most likely because there are more acute issues we're currently dealing with. The results of the DMPS challenge test came back with elevated mercury, but it was lower than the dr expected. Interestingly enough, my RBC elements test came back showing higher-than normal amounts of arsenic, lead, cadmium, thallium and manganese.
It's going to take awhile to get my amalgams removed, due to financial constraints. Fortunately, there's a dentist right down the road that claims to be "mercury-free". Once I get back from vacation, I'll be making an appt to see if they follow the appropriate protocol for amalgam removal.
I'm currently taking the following supplements daily for various reasons:
4000mg vit C
3 drops of Lugol's solution
75mg iron (as ferrous succinate) - for iron deficiency
400mg magnesium (as magnesium citrate)
2000 IU vit D - for deficiency
1600 IU vit A - included in the vit D supplement
1000mg Omega-3 fatty acids (as fish oil)
100mg Vit B-complex
400mg Vit E-complex
A good multi-mineral, including trace elements
