  • Okay that does not sound anything like what happened with my son. I was told anything over 10 was high, but until it hit 15 they didn't need to be chelated at the hospital only treated with diet. My son tested at 11 and we treated with diet and within 6 months he was down to 4 and within 9 months was down to 1. I also had a local government agency show up at my door to try and figure out where it was coming from. We did and took care to keep him safe from it. Good luck.
