How is lead poisoning diagnosed?

In Connecticut, children between the ages of 9 months and 35 months must be tested for lead poisoning each year.  Most healthcare providers include this simple blood test at the 12 month and 24 month check-up.  The test is not optional as it is the law and is covered by insurance, so there is no fee for the parent to pay.
