Bromide (Br), Urine

Bromide is an essential trace element that is naturally present in the human body and can be found in various food sources, such as seafood, dairy products, and certain fruits and vegetables.

Bromide is not considered an essential nutrient for human health, but it does have some physiological functions. It may play a role in the central nervous system and other biological processes. The kidneys are responsible for eliminating excess bromide from the body. The rate of excretion can vary depending on factors such as dietary intake and individual metabolism.

Bromism is a condition that can occur when a person is exposed to high levels of bromide. Symptoms of bromism can include fatigue, headaches, confusion, and in severe cases, it may lead to seizures or coma. Monitoring bromide levels in urine may be necessary in cases of suspected bromism.

The measurement of bromide in urine is not a routine part of standard medical practice. It is typically reserved for specific clinical situations where there is a concern about bromide exposure, such as in cases of bromide toxicity or environmental exposure to bromide-containing chemicals.
