Why Get Tested?

Newborn screening detects metabolic disorders that can cause developmental issues and lifelong complications such as mental retardation, physical disability and in some instances, death, if it is left untreated.

About 1 in every 1,250 babies is expected to be born with a metabolic disorder1. Newborn babies with such disorders lack enzymes to maintain normal metabolic functions, resulting in a build-up of toxic substances or deficiency of critical substances. Though rare, if left untreated, metabolic disorders can cause serious developmental issues and lifelong complications such as mental retardation, physical disability and in some instances, death.
