At-Home Blood Testing, Exposure Assessment & Physician Consultation for PFAS

It is estimated that 200 million people in the U.S. are drinking tap or well water known to be contaminated with poly and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), and 97% of us have PFAS in our blood from our drinking water, firefighting foam, consumer products, agricultural soil, and contaminated food. Elevated blood levels of PFAS increase one’s risk for serious illnesses.

If we want good health for ourselves and our society, we must recognize and reduce our exposure to PFAS and other toxins.  Votary, M.D. is committed to helping people prevent disease and protect their health with individualized toxin assessment, PFAS blood testing, and personalized risk reduction plans.

Knowing your PFAS blood level is a first step toward protecting your health from toxic contamination.

How to Reduce PFAS Exposure & Lower Your Risk with Expert Consultations

PFAS exposure raises significant health concerns because it increases the risk for diseases that significantly affect the length and quality of our lives, including thyroid cancer, kidney cancer, testicular cancer, breast cancer, ulcerative colitis, thyroid disease, immune suppression, high cholesterol, and pregnancy complications.

Reducing your PFAS blood level, and minimizing your ongoing exposure to PFAS and other toxic exposures, is imperative for good health. If your PFAS blood level is elevated you can lower your risk immediately by identifying and stopping your exposure.

Since the medical system does not address chronic toxin exposures there is no easy or reliable way to get an individualized assessment of your exposure to PFAS or other toxins. Votary, M.D. fills this gap by providing direct access to and consultations with physicians who are specifically trained and experienced in the sources and implications of chronic toxin exposure, especially in regards to PFAS exposure.

At-Home PFAS Blood Testing, Exposure Assessment & Personalized Risk Reduction Plans

We will arrange at-home blood testing for PFAS, provide an individualized exposure assessment and reduction plan, and prepare a health risk assessment, with recommendations grounded in the guidelines for PFAS exposure, testing, and follow-up recently developed by the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine. While we do not provide medical diagnosis or treatment of diseases, if your results indicate the need for future medical monitoring or clinical follow-up, this can easily be carried out by you and your primary care physician.
