lead poisoning in infants
Hi. I'm looking for advice from parents whose children have tested positive for elevated lead levels. My daughter recently tested positive (>10ug/dL, I think) and I'm trying to decide the best course of action. I understand the city has several programs available but these are fairly limited and have lengthy waiting periods. I've spoken with a company who will take samples of our dust around the house and evaluate where the lead is coming from. I also understand that X-Ray fluoresence (XRF) testing can be used to identify objects/regions with elevated lead levels. Finally, I know that there is potential the lead is coming from the water supply. Outside of the services provided by the city, all of the aforementioned services are quite expensive and not guarenteed to produce results. Moreover, I assume remediation will be even more expensive.
I guess I'm just hoping some of you can tell me how you addressed your children's elevated lead levels in the hopes of coming up with the best course of action. I'm also curious how common of a problem this is and how long the remediation period took before your children's lead levels were undetectable...
