QUESTION: Testing of Crawling Babies For Lead Exposure - 28 Feb 2007 WA, Australia

The following advice has been provided to me by a member of the Lead Group regarding  blood lead testing and babies who are of crawling age. I think it is particularly useful and worth emphasizing. They recommend a blood lead test be taken prior to crawling followed by a test two weeks after crawling has commenced. This provides an excellent opportunity to assess the lead exposure of the child in its crawling environment.

Perhaps this can be posted in appropriate place on the website, including the 'what doctors need to do about lead' section. Would it be possible to forward the message (re: blood lead testing and crawling) on to other websites/organisations/e-groups both within an outside Australia?

Regards, Daniel.‍


ANSWER: 11 Jul 2007

Dear Daniel,

Thanks for emailing the information that you and Elizabeth O'Brien talked about. We are very shortly placing it on our web information pages for others to refer to as well.

Best regards, Patrick Mugo Muraguri Volunteer Information Officer
