I do not want to scare anybody but I am finding HUGE levels of Nickel in my blood, measured for the first time so unfortunately I do not have a baseline.
I have several suspects but one (hypothesis) is the nebulizing device which I am using since about 2.5 years. Doing hypersaline 3% inhalations. The small portable battery powered compression has surely (checking that w/ manufacturer) some nickel containing alloys. Also doing a bronco-dilator (tiotropium bromide monohydrate + olodaterol hydrochloride) prior to nebulizing.
Have you ever checked in blood your nickel level since you started your nebulizing therapy?
Can someone tell experience or ask a competence centers such as NJH, Tyler etc…?
Thanks a lot!
No fundamental environmental exposures that I can think of (such as industrial etc ..) and food is not expected to be the culprit. Another suspect is a mandibular traction device I am using since 8 years (so even more time than the nebulizer) for a mild sleep apneae, which has also nickel containing parts, checking also that.
