Ask Tamara: How quickly did your child’s blood lead level go down?


People are ALWAYS asking me… “How quickly did your child’s level go down?”  or “How quickly can I expect my child’s level to go down?”

There are so many factors at play (in terms of how quickly you can expect your child’s level to go down) that it is a difficult question to answer.

However – I just was going through (my husband’s) e-mail looking for some information to quickly share with a journalist asking for specifics about our kids’ levels history, and I found the following e-mails from 2007 that discuss Avi’s blood lead level and specifically show how quickly it went down (and then back up and then back down again!)

Please feel free to ask questions in the comments on this post and I will do my best to answer them.  Click on the image of the e-mail to see slightly larger.
