Mercury Hg

Metal Mercury Hg belongs to the category of heavy metals. Exposure to mercury is neurotoxic and has severe effects that can lead to severe neurological disorders, coma, or even death. Children are extremely sensitive to mercury exposure, with much lower tolerance levels than adults.

Usually, the source of exposure is contaminated fish (swordfish tuna, shark) from areas with industry that uses mercury.

Measurement is required when there is evidence of toxicity from exposure to heavy metals.

Signs of mercury exposure toxicity are:

  • Weaknesses in peripheral vision, speech, hearing, walking
  • Tremor in hands, Changes in nerve reactions, Low mental functions
  • Emotional changes - Disturbances in the senses
  • Insomnia - Weakness - Headaches
  • Muscle atrophy

Excessive exposure creates problems in kidney function, respiratory dysfunction, and even death.

Mercury is in liquid form and evaporates very easily. Mercury vapors are absorbed through the lungs. For this reason, if mercury is spilled in a closed space, it should not be collected with a vacuum cleaner because it will spray it into the air.

Simple blood collection happens at any time of the day (7.30-19.30)

The result is given in 2-3 days
