QUESTION: Trouble finding a doctor that knows about lead poisoning. Can you help me? 14 Aug 2008 New York, USA

I have experience a variety of symptoms for about 2 months. After literally dozens of blood tests, MRIs, CT scans, the neurologist discovered lead in my 24 hour heavy metals test, 10.6mg. I am in graduate school and had just moved when receiving the result. I am having trouble finding a doctor that knows anything about lead poisoning in adults. I also am having problems with finding anyone that can explain what lead in my urine means, short term and long term. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ANSWER: 02 Apr 2009

Dear Blain,

We apologise for the delay in response to your email. We had quite a shortage in staff who answer the emails.

I would hope by now that you would have found a physician who can deal with your condition, but just in case I will be sending you another email which will contain our info pack about lead poisoning. It applies for both children and adults and it contains the websites of different organizations in the US which deal with lead poisoning. You will also find in the info pack a list of doctors trained to administer chelation therapy and you can just find the most accessible one.

I hope this will help you and good luck.

Regards,

Iman Hegazi, MBBS, MD. Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, Volunteer
