Mercury is a toxic heavy metal that if exposed to at high levels can cause damage to the nervous system, brain, kidneys, lungs and blood vessels. It can also result in many diseases such as acrodynia, Hunter-Russell syndrome and Minamata disease.

Exposure to mercury can occur from eating fish, having certain dental filings, breathing contaminated air and in industries that burn coal as well as gold, cement, steel and battery production.

The mercury blood test measures your exposure to mercury. This test can be influenced by eating fish, because fish (particularly certain deep sea fish) may contain mercury. This test is for anyone who is worried about mercury exposure either from the workplace, environment or from certain dental fillings. It is also for employers required to carry out biological monitoring for workers potentially exposed to mercury.
