Discussion of treatments for Lead poisoning:

What can you do to reduce the blood levels in your children? At this time, there is considerable debate about what therapy to administer if any. Some promote chelation therapy in which a drug is administered that binds or encloses the lead ions and then is excreted. The problem is that only a small fraction of the lead in the body is in the blood. So, if you remove all the lead in the blood today, lead in other body tissue will equilibrate with the blood so that after all of the drug is excreted, the lead concentration in the blood will build back up to near pretreatment levels. Of course, one could routinely administer the drug over and over; however these drugs can damage the liver and/or kidneys, especially over multiple doses. Also, these drugs are rather not-specific and can eliminate essential metal ions from the blood. You will need to discuss with your physician, what the best action or therapy is for your child. However, unless you eliminate exposure, therapy will be of little help. (Source: excerpt from Lead Poisoning: NIEHS_1)
