The plastic surgeon informed me breast implants should be replaced every ten years to be on the safe side and I was planning on having them removed in ten years.
Despite the ten year safety plan, I noticed breast implant symptoms such as fatigue, brainfog, slow recovery, muscle pain and hypothyroid in the first couple years after implantation.
Not realizing my symptoms could be from breast implants, I attempted to manage with better nutrition, exercise and supplements.
But as time progressed, more symptoms appeared such as ringing in my ears, easy bruising, slow healing of cuts and scrapes, hormonal imbalances, yeast infections, ear infections, hair loss, headaches and greater fatigue.
I have MTHFR genetic variants that affect my ability to methylate (break down) toxins and to detox metals.
Many of us do have MTHFR genetic variants and without supporting our methylation pathways with specific nutrients very little detoxing and healing will happen.
Symptoms of breast implant illness vary from body to body due to personal differences, the type of breast implants and the progression of the illness however it appears that a few symptoms show up a little earlier and more consistently such as fatigue/low energy, cognitive dysfunction (brain fog, memory loss), headaches, joint and muscle pain, hair loss, recurring infections, swollen lymph nodes and swollen glands, rashes, IBS, problems with thyroid and adrenals.There are no definitive test(s) to prove that your breast implants are the cause of your symptoms and illness but the following medical tests have been used to investigate common problems in us caused by breast implants, silicone, silicone chemicals, heavy metals and biotoxin from fungus and other infections however many women show just inside normal ranges in regard to testing and are still very ill and symptomatic: Medical Lab Tests 1. MRI WITHOUT GANDOLINIUM CONTRAST WHICH CAUSES TOXICITY IN US OR ULTRASOUND TO DETECT LEAKS/RUPTURES (We advise against Mammograms due to their ability to rupture breast implants) Other Tests 1.ANA ANTINUCLEAR ANTIBODY (Checks autoimmune markers) 2. The Silicone Hypersensitivity Panel has existed for years and is once again gaining popularity but it should not be used to rule out breast implant illness as results vary from woman to woman and ingredients vary from implant to implant.Using PCR, one of the most advanced tools in molecular biology today, specificity of this test is one in a trillion or greater and the sensitivity of the test is the ability to detect the DNA of between 1 and 10 microbes.DNA Connexions provides Full View test kits for collecting blood, tissue, teeth, root canals, cavitations, implants, bone grafts, paper points, swabs, floss, and saline.
