Lead Intervention

Lead poisoning can harm virtually every system in the human body, so a lead poisoned child may show different types of symptoms. Also, some children may not show any symptoms until the problem becomes worse.
Product Recall Information
Lead Alert Network

If symptoms are present, they include: feeling weak or tired, stomach pains, headache, and pain in the hands, feet, muscles, or joints (such as knees or elbows). Lead poisoning can cause speech and language problems and developmental delays (a child who does not develop as quickly as others). Children with lead poisoning often get in trouble at school or at home and have trouble controlling their emotions and actions. Extremely high blood lead levels can lead to death.

The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County is currently involved in tracking the number of children and adults who are lead poisoned. If you are interested in testing your child for lead poisoning, please contact your child’s pediatrician.

Please contact us if you would like to receive information about childhood lead poisoning.
