Lead Treatment Information for Medical Professionals

We see all patients with lead levels 5 ug/dL or greater. Our comprehensive environmental histories and direct communication with the local health departments help identify and remediate the sources of lead. Connecting families with local resources, like Connecticut Children’s Healthy Homes Program, is also an important part of keeping children lead-safe.

Educational Services

We educate families on ways to prevent continued exposure to the source of the lead. Extensive nutritional guidance and developmental evaluation are also a part of each visit. In addition, we supervise inpatient chelation for lead levels greater than 45ug/dL.

We follow patients in clinic until they have 2 lead levels less than 5ug/dL at least 6 months apart.

We are also available to provide education to any office that would like to learn about lead poisoning prevention. If you are interested in scheduling a lecture, please schedule a training through the EPIC program.
