Salamander - UTM Update

As mentioned here, I took a UTM for Salamander on July 16. Got the results today:

This was a sample with somewhat elevated creatinine (81 mg/dL), so he was definitely in viral detox.

Aluminum excretion was up with a factor of about 3 versus the prior UTM (with highest absolute aluminum excretion since December 07)
Similarly, mercury excretion was up with a factor of about 3 versus the prior UTM (with the highest absolute mercury excretion since December 07 as well).
And then there was the *usual* arsenic, cadmium, lead, nickel and thallium excretion.

Salamander is DEFINITELY in detox.

I sent in another UTM on July 23. I should have results for that one sometime next week.

In addition, I'll be running weekly UTMs for a while .. Unfortunately, Salamander was put in a position this weekend where he was exposed to lead paint chips and dust. Salamander IS lead toxic already, so needless to say, I am really, really B... S... about this whole exposure situation.
I'll be keeping a very close eye on his lead output (as well as on his overall behavior presentation). Yesterday wasn't such a good day for him.. and today was rough too...
