Lead Testing at Colorado Mountain Medical
Colorado Mountain Medical has Rapid Lead Testing available for patients who may have been exposed to dangerous levels of lead. Lead poisoning in children may be the result of drinking water from out-dated or corroding plumbing, or from inhaling or ingesting dust or particles from lead-based paint.
Many products sold in the United States are produced in countries where manufacturing regulations are not as stringent. Symptoms of lead poisoning include headaches, stomach cramps, fatigue, memory loss, high blood pressure and seizures. Lead poisoning has been linked to developmental delays and learning disabilities.
Lead testing is simple and results are readily available which means treatment can be implemented before damaging effects of lead poisoning occur.
Please ask your primary care physician at Colorado Mountain Medical if you are interesting in more information or testing.
