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.
