Should I have my blood tested for PFAS?

A blood test for PFAS can tell you how much of each PFAS measured is in your blood. It can allow you to compare your PFAS levels to national norms or with other communities. Blood testing also helps us measure PFAS exposure for community studies on health outcomes.

At this time, we don't know what the PFAS levels in blood mean in terms of individual health risk. The test results can't be used to diagnose current health problems, predict future health problems, or indicate a specific course of treatment for the patient.

If you have specific health concerns, please consult with your health care provider.
