Blood metal ion levels can identify hip replacement patients at low risk of ARMDBlood metal ion levels can effectively identify patients at low risk of adverse reactions after metal on metal hip replacementDate:September 21, 2017Source:Wolters Kluwer HealthSummary:Patients with ‘metal on metal’ artificial hips are at risk of complications caused by adverse reactions to metal debris (ARMD). A study confirms that blood metal ion levels specific to the type of hip implant used can help predict patients who are at low risk of ARMD.

I can’t see how you can apply this study to anything if you haven’t first determined if the patient who has the hip device in them has an acute sensitivity towards any level of metalosis in their body.This seems to me to be another shoot from the hip recommendation from some very short-sighted medical professionals who in the past have been shown that they are blinded with dollars given to them by corrupt device manufacturers and Big Pharmaceutical Conglomerates I certainly wouldn’t use them for evaluating my situation because up until now they have a perfect record they have been 100% wrong every time, never got it right ounce and they still can’t get it right. What an incompetent bunch of Jackasses!
