# What is the conversion for Lead (heavy metal) of 7.242 mcg/g

### Customer Question

What is the conversion for Lead (heavy metal) of 7.242 mcg/g in ug/dL (with safest dose and out of range reference limit i.e levels given, for U.K population also given), as well as for mercury: 2.12mcg/g to be converted in ug/kg body weight/d for a 60kg person or in ug/d in a 60kg adult for all combined sources of mercury, mean and above range levels given for a UK population, and similar with rubidium 0.086 mcg/g mcg/g (which i believe in not toxic as similar to potassium). Please give all steps of each calculation to enable me to work it out for future reference and other metals. Please indicate which blood test would be best to determine heavy metal toxicity and why. Thanks

Please indicate how a total vegetarian, but with history of infection and antibiotics, would have high level of mercury? could it be due to flu jab which i have been told still has it.  Please include some reference articles from websites to help with topic and refer to later.

Thanks

Dr. K. :

Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Hi Ill try to help. ug and mcg are the same. They both refer to micrograms

Dr. K. :

A kg is 1000 grams

Dr. K. :

You cannot convert micrograms per gram to micrograms per dl (deciliter)

Dr. K. :

grams is a weight of measure and dl is a weight of volume

Dr. K. :

You could do this if you knew what the lead was suspended in

Dr. K. :

1. 2.12 mcg/g is the same as 2.12 ug per gram . Multiplied by 1000 its 2120 micrograms per kilogram

Dr. K. :

Hope this helps
