    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    How to prevent lead poisoning
    avatar
    Jennifer Shu, MD posted:
    Having too much lead in the body can cause problems with a child's growth, behavior and brain development. Pediatricians may check for a child's risk of lead exposure using a questionnaire and may recommend a blood test around 1 and 2 years of age. Parents concerned about their child's possible exposure to lead may also want to talk to the doctor about the need for testing and ways to avoid lead poisoning.
