LEAD, RANDOM URINE

Increased urine lead excretion rate indicates significant lead exposure. Measurement of urine lead excretion rate before and after chelation therapy has been used as an indicator of lead exposure. An increase in lead excretion rate in the postchelation specimen of up to 6 times the rate in the prechelation specimen is normal.
