Beryllium Blood Test

Test for exposure to beryllium.
CBD is a chronic granulomatous lung disease induced by inhaling airborne beryllium after being sensitized to beryllium. These are all frequent CBD effects of shortness of breath, unexplained coughing, exhaustion, weight loss, fever, and night sweats. 
People who work or live near beryllium companies are most likely to be exposed to it. People who work in industries that mine, process, machine, or convert beryllium into metal, alloys, and other compounds may be exposed to high quantities of beryllium. 
Beryllium is commonly used in gears and cogs, particularly in the aerospace industry. Beryllium is a silvery-white metallic element. It has a low density and is relatively soft. Beryllium is used to create gyroscopes, springs, electrical contacts, spot-welding electrodes, and non-sparking tools in alloys with copper or nickel. 

Beryllium poisoning symptoms? 
Breathing difficulties (shortness of breath), coughing, exhaustion, weight loss, fever, and night sweats are all symptoms of chronic beryllium illness. Enlargement of the liver, spleen, and right heart, as well as kidney stones, are symptoms.
