Benefits of Newborn Screening

As signs and/or symptoms of a metabolic disorder may not be apparent at birth, newborn screening provides two main advantages:

  • Early Diagnosis and Intervention

    Expanded newborn screening can help identify newborns with potentially life-altering disorders. Although 99% of all babies will have normal results, the greatest benefit is allowing the balance 1% of the babies receive early diagnosis and treatment so that they do not proceed to developing serious and lifelong complications.

  • Reduce Financial Burden

    Newborns with undetected metabolic disorders can go on to develop serious lifelong complications such as physical disability or mental retardation which will create long-term financial burden for the families affected. The initial one-time cost of expanded newborn screening is considered very low when compared to the long-term financial burden of morbidity caused by metabolic disorders.

Expanded newborn screening is an essential step in newborn care to prevent metabolic disorders from going undetected in your baby.
