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.

Hi Ill try to help. ug and mcg are the same. They both refer to micrograms
A kg is 1000 grams
You cannot convert micrograms per gram to micrograms per dl (deciliter)
grams is a weight of measure and dl is a weight of volume
You could do this if you knew what the lead was suspended in
Hope this helps
Sorry but i don't think you have answered my question, have you read it
I sure did. I did answer it above I am hoping you can read the entire response
lead and mercury suspended in hair, as in hair analysis, but could do for blood too
Could you help further or would you like to pass the question to another expert
