When the doctors run test... do they check for lead or do I have to ask to check for it? Or would it come up on it's own?

  • I don't think they usually check the mother. In my state it's law that they check the child in his/her first year.

  • In my state you have to request a lead level check. They used to be mandatory but they didnt find enough kids with high lead levels so they stopped doing them.
