Lead Levels and Children Question

My son (7 years old) has just been tested for his lead level.  The result was 
26.4 UG/L.  I will be seeing a specialist about this.  My doctor, who has 
talked to the specialist, suggests that at this level treatment might well be 
worse than leaving it alone and letting time take care of it.

Anyone out there with experience with lead poisoning, guidelines re: children 
and acceptable levels.  The treatments available and the risk factors?

Thank-you very much.

Jane
