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.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
