Biomarker profile

  • Trace Elements

Trace Elements (1 Biomarker)

This test measures the concentration of lead within the blood. Lead is a poisonous metal that in the past was used in paints, petrol and other household products. Lead can be breathed into the lungs, through lead dust, or ingested through food and drink. No household or workplace is 100% lead-free; there are tiny quantities of it everywhere. However, if you think you've been exposed to higher levels than normal, it's vital you get tested frequently as lead can build up in your body over a long period of time.

High levels of lead in the body can damage the brain, nerves and blood cells. High concentrations can also affect kidney function and the ability of nerves to conduct messages quickly through the body. Lead can also harm the reproductive organs. There are various early symptoms of lead poisoning including tiredness, headaches, muscle and joint pain, stomach aches and cramps. If untreated, excess lead in the body can cause serious health problems, even if there are no obvious symptoms.
