    Metals and Poisoning

    Have you been exposed to a heavy metal in your workplace? Personalabs is here to help, offering screenings for excessive exposure to certain heavy metals, including testing for lead, mercury, arsenic and iron toxicity. These tests will evaluate the levels of these toxic metals by blood or urine sample.
    If you are interested in testing for heavy metal toxicity, it is recommended you refrain from eating any seafood or seaweed prior to heavy metal testing as these foods elevate concentrations and may affect the results.

    In addition, there are standard blood tests that help diagnose heavy metal toxicity and evaluate its severity. These include a complete blood count (CBC), a urine analysis and liver function tests.

    Symptoms vary, depending upon certain factors such as the type of metal, how much metal, the length of exposure, the person’s age and their general state of well-being. Some symptoms to excessive heavy metal exposure include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, numbness, tingling of hands and feet, weakness, fatigue, anemia, kidney and liver damage, brain dysfunction, memory loss, irritation in the lungs, horizontal lines on nails (known as Mees lines) and behavioral changes.

    You are able to process limited amounts of heavy metals. However, large volumes can accumulate in your liver, kidneys, lungs and brain and can be fatal. Exposure to some metals can even increase your risk of developing cancer and can impact the production of red and white blood cells in your body. Additionally, women who are pregnant can pass metals to their baby during childbirth or while breastfeeding.
