This test measures Barium levels in a person's urine. Barium is a metallic element which can be found in nature and is used in a number of industrial settings. Exposure to barium typically comes from contaminated drinking water or in the workplace. Barium is frequently used in oil and gas drilling as well as the production of paint, bricks, glass, ceramics and rubber.
Barium can cause symptoms such as muscle weakness, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, increase or decrease in blood pressure and numbness around the face.
Barium testing is recommended for anyone who works in a setting where Barium is present or lives in an area suspected of having higher than normal barium levels in the environment.
