Why is this test important?
This panel of tests can detect the presence of heavy metals in the blood and help diagnose recent or acute heavy metal exposure, or monitor levels in people with prolonged, repeated exposure.

Some heavy metals are also considered carcinogens, while others interfere with blood production. Heavy metal exposure may interfere with a child’s physical and cognitive development. Age, overall health, type and length of exposure and the type of metal determine the severity of the contact.

Who should be tested?
People with a combination of these symptoms and recent exposure should be tested, or those repeatedly exposed to heavy metals at work.
What does the test include?
The heavy metals blood profile detects and monitors acute or prolonged exposure to arsenic, lead, mercury and cadmium.
