JOBf WMKfle %D DEAR DR LAMB I'm writing you m hopes you may be able to offer some advice to one who is suffering from lead poisoning This lady has been under treatment for about two years, and the doctors tell her there is nothing they can do She lives in a small town in the Midwest and has been treated by doctors there She has heard this condition has been treated successfully by a doctor in California but doesn't know whether or not she should try to go there at considerable expense having such little information Any advice you might offer will be greatly appreciated DEAR READER There is no reason she can't be treated in her own com- munity Mild or moderate lead poisoning in adults is not difficult to treat anymore There are two principles Get the patient away from the source of the poison, for ex- ample, children away from lead paint that they may be picking off the walls The se- principle is to eliminate any of the accumulated stores of lead in the body The drug of choice to eliminate lead is called Penicillamme It combines with the lead and eliminates it through the kidneys In the course of two years, if your friend has been treated ade- quately, the excess lead should long since have been removed from her body Penicillamme can be taken by mouth for long periods of time Lead poisoning can cause damage to the body This includes damage to the nerves, including the brain and muscles The damage that is left cannot be cured by the medicine I mentioned The treatment here is directed to what can be accomplished to restore function to damaged structures, be that nerves, eyes or muscles There is no magic cure for that either Many of these problems are treated by rehabilation methods These are common- ly available in larger medical centres So, I can't believe your fnend is going to gain much by going on a long trip away from home for something that is most surely available in her home state If she wants a consultation on her problem have her ask her family doc- tor to refer her to the nearest university medical centre The centre in her state is a good one Patients looking for a solu- tion to what seems to be an unsolvable medical problem can always ask their family doctor for a referral to their neaiest university medical centre There just isn t very much known in medicine that each one of these centres haven t heard about or are not skilled in doing I know patients get medical advice from all levels of medical skill medical doctors, os- teopaths, chiropractors, nurses, next door neighbors, the mailman and even medical columns Considering all of these possibilities, if your problem isn't resolved, I don't think you can go wrong by insisting, whatever the source of your medical advice, that you be referred to the nearest univer- sity medical centre for evaluation If your source won't help you, you can write to the university medical centre and ask them for a recommendation for medical evaluation closer to your home, or how to be seen This is much better than chasing across the nation on rumor and hearsay advice (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
