QUESTION: What kind of doctor does my 14 year old need to see for testing if he was lead poisoned when 3? 11/03/09   Rhode Island, USA - United States of America

 My son was diagnosed with lead poisoning when he was 3 years old. He is 14 years old now and I want him to get tests done by a doctor but I don't know what kind of doctor he needs to see for testing. He has been gotten suspended 5 times since September 08 to present. I need him diagnosed properly to get him the help he needs. I would like any lit you may have on this poison as well as the type of doctor I should take him to see.

ANSWER: Mar 11 2009

Dear Carmen,

I will email you our info packs on nutrition, case management, and the dangers of a blood lead level above 2 micrograms per decilitre, so that you have guidance on finding a treating doctor (if needed) and you can forward the information to any local doctor. Any well-informed, lead-experienced doctor that you trust is a good choice for your son.

All the best

Yours Sincerely

Elizabeth O'Brien
