Hi,

Chronic lead poisoning occurs when small amounts of lead are taken in over a longer period. This is more common in children who put almost anything in their mouths. The higher the level of lead in a child's body, the more serious the problems, which can include slowed reflexes, learning problems and even mental retardation. At very high levels, lead poisoning can cause seizures, coma, and death. A high level of lead in the blood can be detected with a simple blood test. Immediate consult with your doctor is important for proper management. It is important to avoid further contact with lead.

Take care and regards.
