Helping families work through lead paint issues

Peeling window paint or a renovation project in an older home can inadvertently expose children to lead paint. Anemia and constipation can be signs of lead poisoning, which can lead to learning problems in children. We work with families of children who have tested positive for elevated levels of lead. A veteran pediatrician versed in treating and dealing with the ramifications of lead paint exposure will work with you and your child. Our goal is to help guide your family through what can be a long and challenging process, from switching your child to a high fiber, high calcium diet, to complying with state laws and regulations requiring lead paint removal after it is discovered in a home or apartment.
