Treatment can range from changes in your diet to medications or a hospital stay. Lead poisoning is treatable with a medicine that pulls lead out of the blood.

It's most important that you identify and get rid of the source of the lead poisoning. Your local health department can recommend ways to identify and reduce lead in your home and community. In some cases, avoiding further exposure to lead may be adequate to lower your child's lead levels.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
