Dear all

Are there any mums who had experience with detoxifying lead in their kids blood?

My 4.5 old son is diagnosed since 2 year of autism.

He has high levels of lead since more than 3 years.
(Due to pika...he shewed a paint in an old house)

Could this lead cause him speech delay?

I have researcged online and found that leadpoisoning cause traits similar to autism.

Hope there are mum who can share their experience or advise me.

Thanks mumsnet

Are you in the UK? What did your gp say?

I think you need to steer well clear of anything that isn't provided by the NHS because of lot of this chelation stuff is pure snake oil.
