Aluminum toxicity is a medical disorder that happens when a person takes orally or breathes high levels of aluminum into the body.
Aluminum is the third most prevalent element and the most plentiful metal in the earth's surface.
Humans are naturally exposed to relatively large quantities of aluminum from food, water or air.
Lately, aluminum toxicity has risen precipitously.
Today, nearly 80% of those tested for metal toxicity show excessively high hair aluminum levels.
Aluminum sources are:
1. Aluminum cookware or cans
2. Infant Formulas
3. Aluminum in vaccines or antacids
4. Aluminum in anti-perspirants and cosmetics
5. Hemodialysis and intravenous fluids
Symptoms of Aluminum Toxicity are:
1. Confusion
2. Muscle weakness
3. Bone pain, deformities, and fractures
4. Seizures
5. Speech disorders
6. Slow growth
The diagnosis is based on high aluminum in the blood, bone marrow and hair.
Removal of aluminum toxicity is with deferoxamine and avoiding aluminum sources.
Reverse osmosis or distillation are regarded to be the most effective ways to eliminate aluminum from water.
Antacids without aluminum such as Tums should be given if necessary.
Avoid Antiperspirants
Complications of Aluminum Toxicity may be:
1. Lung problems
2. Nervous system problems causing difficulty with voluntary and involuntary actions
3. Bone diseases
4. Brain diseases and disorders
5. Anemia
