QUESTION: Is there a clinic in Europe specialising in heavy metal treatment? 15 Feb 2004, Iran
I am a relative of a 9 year old boy called Sepehr suffering from behaviour problems (autistic behaviors) in Iran. He was diagnosed with heavy metal poisoning (especially lead poisoning) a year ago after about 1.5 years delay in diagnosis.
We are looking for a medical center in Europe or Australia specialized in lead poisoning treatment. Sepehr's parents are in agony while they see their little boy being behind his peers.
We wish to follow a good treatment plan for him because there are no doctors in Iran specialized in heavy metal poisoning.
ANSWER: 15 Feb 2004
Dr Reza in Iran has sent the following question to me at the Global Lead Advice and Support Service (GLASS) but since I know of no such clinic in Australia or Europe I am forwarding this question to PAN. Could people please respond directly to Dr Reza as well as to [email protected] because, although I have invited Dr Reza to join PAN, he may not be a member.
