Mercury toxicity presenting as chronic fatigue, memory impairment and depression: Diagnosis, treatment, susceptibility, and outcomes in a New Zealand general practice setting (1994-2006)

  [ 167 votes ]   [ 1 Comment ]
By DP Wojcik, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • September 5, 2007


In a group of 465 patients diagnosed as having chronic mercury toxicity (CMT), 32.3% had severe fatigue, 88.8% had memory loss, and 27.5% had depression.

A significant correlation was found between CMT and the Apo-lipoprotein E4 genotype (p=0.001). [Note: About a quarter of the population carry the APO E4 gene, which is associated with an increased risk of developing late-onset Alzheimer's disease, which is the most common form.]

An investigation into an additional 864 consecutively seen general practice patients resulted in 30.3% having evidence consistent with CMT, and once again a significant correlation was found with the APO-E4 genotype (p=0.001).

Removal of amalgam mercury fillings when combined with appropriate treatment resulted in a significant symptom reduction (p<0.001) to levels reported by healthy subjects. [p<0.001 means statistically probability of this result occurring by chance is less than 1 in 1,000.]

Mercury Testing
Posted by: findmind

Is mercury testing easy to get? Would most doctors order it for a patient? I don't recall being exposed to it, but eat fish regularly. What are other ways to be exposed? Thank you for this informative article. findmind
