Should I get my blood tested for PFAS?

We understand that some people may want to know the level of PFAS in their blood. While tests can measure the amount of PFAS in your blood, the results won’t tell you how PFAS will affect your health now or in the future. Most people in the United States have one or more specific PFAS in their blood, especially PFOS and PFOA. Talk with your health care provider about testing. Additional information on labs that offer testing is found below.
