Lead is a heavy metal found naturally, as well as in many common household products, including ceramic toothbrushes, ceramic tiles in older bathrooms and vintage fashion jewelry.
It can be breathed in, perhaps through lead dust, or ingested through food and drink. No household or workplace is 100% lead-free; there are tiny quantities everywhere. However, if you think you've been exposed to more levels than most, it's vital you're tested frequently as lead can build up in your body over a long period of time. This test identifies high levels of lead, which can lead to damage of the brain, kidneys, nerves and blood cells.
There are various early symptoms of lead poisoning, including tiredness, headaches, muscle and joint pain, stomach aches and cramps, and irritability.
Acute lead exposure is rare; however, toxicity may occur through acute ingestion of a lead salt or acetate. Urine is suggested specimen in which chronic lead poisoning may be monitored.
This test is for anyone who is worried about lead exposure either from the workplace or environment.
It is also for employers required to carry out biological monitoring for workers potentially exposed to lead.

Creatinine is a chemical waste molecule that is generated from muscle metabolism. Measurement of this is an indicator of the levels of other waste products in the body. Creatinine is an accurate marker of kidney function.
Elevated creatinine can be caused by high intake of animal protein, taking creatine supplements and vigorous exercise but can also indicate that the kidneys are not working properly.
Low creatinine can be caused by a low protein diet, reduced muscle mass or sometime that the kidneys are simply functioning efficiently.
