Mercury is a naturally occurring heavy metal that can be found in the air, water, and soil. It is also used in various industries such as mining, dentistry, and electronics. However, exposure to high levels of mercury can be harmful to human health. The Mercury Panel or Mercury Test is conducted to detect the presence of mercury in the blood.
Symptoms of heavy metal-mercury poisoning can vary from person to person and depend on the amount and extent of exposure to the metal. Some of the most common symptoms include:
1. Weakness and fatigue
2. Tremors and muscle spasms
3. Nervousness and irritability
4. Memory loss and difficulty concentrating
5. Headaches and dizziness
6. Numbness or tingling in the hands, feet, or around the mouth
7. Skin rashes or dermatitis
For the mercury panel, you need to submit a small sample of blood. The clinician will collect a small sample of blood from a vein in your arm using a needle. The procedure usually takes less than 5 minutes, and you can resume your normal activities after the collection. At the lab, the sample is analysed to measure the concentration of mercury in your blood sample. The results are usually available within 7 days.
If you receive a positive diagnosis for heavy metal-mercury poisoning, it is essential to limit your exposure to mercury sources. Avoid eating fish that contain high levels of mercury, such as shark, swordfish, and king mackerel. You may also require chelation therapy, a medical treatment that involves the administration of drugs to remove heavy metals from your body.
