The first step of treatment is to locate and remove the source of the lead. Keep children away from the source. If it cannot be removed, it should be sealed. Call your local health department for information on how to remove lead. They can also help you reduce the likelihood of lead exposure.
In more severe cases, a procedure known as chelation therapy can be used. This treatment binds to lead that has accumulated in your body. The lead is then excreted in your urine.
Activated charcoal can be used to bind the lead in the gastrointestinal tract and encourage elimination via defecation. A chemical called EDTA may also be used
Even with treatment, it can be hard to reverse the effects of chronic exposure.
What is the outlook for lead poisoning?
Adults with moderate exposure usually recover without any complications.
In children, recovery can take time. Even low lead exposure can cause permanent intellectual disability.
How can lead poisoning be prevented?
Simple steps can help you prevent lead poisoning. These include:
Avoid or throw away painted toys and canned goods from foreign countries.
Keep your home free from dust.
Use only cold water to prepare foods and drinks.
Make sure everyone washes their hands before eating.
Test your water for lead. If lead levels are high, use a filtering device or drink bottled water.
Clean faucets and aerators regularly.
Wash children’s toys and bottles regularly.
Teach your children to wash their hands after playing.
Make sure any contractor doing work in your house is certified in lead control.
Use lead-free paint in your home.
Take young children for blood lead level screening at their pediatrician’s office. This is usually done around 1 to 2 years of age.
Avoid areas where lead-based paint may have been used.

These are especially hazardous household items. Buy small quantities. Discard unneeded extras. Make sure they are always out of a child's reach.
Medicines: these are OK in the right amount for the right person. They can be dangerous for children who take the wrong medicine or swallow too much.
Carbon monoxide: This gas is in fact an invisible killer. Take it seriously. Make sure there's a carbon monoxide alarm in every sleeping area of your home.
Button batteries: Be especially mindful of the 20 mm lithium coin cell. When swallowed by children, especially those younger than 4 years, it often lodges in the esophagus causing burns within just 2 hours. A hole in the esophagus may develop and the burn can extend into the trachea or aorta. More than 40 children have died from swallowing button batteries.
Iron pills: adult-strength iron pills are very dangerous for children to swallow. Children can start throwing up blood or having bloody diarrhea in less than an hour.
Cleaning products that cause chemical burns: these can be just as bad as burns from fire. Products that cause chemical burns include include drain openers, toilet bowl cleaners, rust removers, and oven cleaners.
Nail glue remover and nail primer: some products used for artificial nails can be poisonous in surprising ways. Some nail glue removers have caused cyanide poisoning when swallowed by children. Some nail primers have caused burns to the skin and mouth of children who tried to drink them.
Hydrocarbons: this is a broad category that includes gasoline, kerosene, lamp oil, motor oil, lighter fluid, furniture polish, and paint thinner. These liquids are easy to choke on if someone tries to swallow them. If that happens, they can go down the wrong way, into the lungs instead of the stomach. If they get into someone’s lungs, they make it hard to breathe. They can also cause lung inflammation (like pneumonia). Hydrocarbons are among the leading causes of poisoning death in children.
