A mycotoxin blood test is a diagnostic tool used to measure the levels of mycotoxins, toxic substances produced by certain fungi, in a person's blood. Mycotoxins can be found on a variety of foods and can cause serious health problems if consumed in large amounts. The mycotoxin blood test is used to detect the presence of mycotoxins in the blood and to evaluate the risk of mycotoxin exposure. The test is typically ordered by a healthcare provider if a person has symptoms consistent with mycotoxin poisoning, such as nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. The test is performed by drawing a sample of blood from a vein in the arm.
