Abstract

We compared the iron status between children 11 to 33 months old with confirmed blood lead levels of 20 to 44 μg/dL and demographically similar children with blood lead levels of <10 μg/dL. There were no differences. Laboratory investigation or empirical treatment for iron deficiency is not justified on the basis of moderately elevated blood lead levels alone.
