About the Test
The Lead Test measures the level of lead in the bloodstream through a venipuncture draw (a needle is used to draw blood from a vein). Lead is a toxic metal found naturally in air, water, soil and in many consumer products. People may have a small amount of lead in the blood from these exposures. However, high levels of lead may indicate significant exposure in your home, workplace, or environment. Lead toxicity can damage the brain, organs, and nervous system. Children are at particular risk of being harmed by lead exposure because their bodies are developing rapidly and able to absorb lead more easily than older children and adults.
