This is a "slightly": elevated level and in adults not dangerous. However if levels are rising not falling exposure to lead at home or at work MUST BE EVALUATED. If your levels remain slightly elevated or are rising a consultation with an Occupational Health Physician is suggested!
Hope this helps! DR Z
