Heavy metals can be screened for inexpensively by hair analysis. Although not completely reliable, and subject to contamination, elevated readings would suggest more accurate testing be done. Serum levels are only useful in acute or serious poisonings. Challenge testing by DMSA or DMPS with urine collection or possibly red blood cell heavy metal testing are a more accurate measure of your total body burden of particular heavy metals.
