ARSENIC EXPOSURE (HAIR)
These compounds can be used in industrial processes such as making electronics. Seafood such as fish and shellfish may accumulate Arsenic; however, most of this is the organic form of Arsenic and is relatively non-toxic.
A hair test can give an expanded window of detection of up to 90 days. Exposure to Arsenic can have very serious consequences for your body, and you may not know right away if you have been exposed. If you live in an area where you might have been exposed to environmental Arsenic, you may decide to choose this test. Employers also monitor their employees for exposure, whether required by OSHA or as a way of establishing a baseline measurement before a candidate is hired.
If you decide to test for Arsenic, you should abstain from seafood for at least two days prior to testing.
Sethi labs do not require a doctor’s order for testing.
Test results are generally available within five (5) business days after your specimen is collected.
No, same-day testing is available.
We recommend you share your results with your physician.
