Cadmium blood test

About this test

Cadmium is a natural element in the earth's crust. All soils and rocks, including coal and mineral fertilizers, have some cadmium in them. The cadmium that industry uses is extracted during the production of other metals like zinc, lead, and copper.

Cadmium does not corrode easily and has many uses. In industry and consumer products, it is used for batteries, pigments, metal coatings, and plastics.

Exposure to cadmium happens mostly in the workplace where cadmium products are made. The general population is exposed from breathing cigarette smoke or eating cadmium contaminated foods.

Cadmium damages the lungs, can cause kidney disease, and may irritate the digestive tract.

Who is this test for?

This test is for anyone who is concerned about cadmium exposure either from the workplace or the environment.

It is also for employers required to carry out biological monitoring for workers potentially exposed to cadmium.
