What is Mercury Poisoning Treatment?

High mercury intake is the cause of mercury poisoning. While the small amounts of mercury found in common foods and products may not be harmful to health, mercury poisoning occurs when intake of the metal exceeds the recommended amount. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration states that excessive mercury intake can lead to anxiety, depression, numbness, tremors, memory issues, and other symptoms.

The management of acute and chronic mercury poisoning caused by mercury exposure is referred to as mercury poisoning treatment. Humans are frequently exposed to mercury through the consumption of polluted seafood and fish. Mercury poisoning has negative effects on the digestive system, peripheral and central nervous systems, and it can even be fatal. Chelating agents, chelating agent combination therapy, and plasma exchange haemodialysis plasmaphoresis are the mainstays of treatment for mercury toxicity. It addresses elemental, organic, and inorganic mercury poisoning. These medications can also be injected and consumed directly.
