Children are particularly at risk from harmful exposure to lead from flaking, chipping, and peeling lead paint in older homes and buildings (built before 1978).
A blood test is the only way to tell if a child has been poisoned by lead. Usually, a “finger poke” is all that is needed to initially test for lead poisoning. If blood level results are high, however, an additional blood draw may be taken to confirm results.
