Health Status Outcomes for Newborn Heelstick Screening

Health Status Outcomes

Most newborns with metabolic disorders appear normal. Signs and symptoms do not develop until the disorder is advanced and morbidity has been established. Early intervention (treatment, dietary changes, etc.) before signs and symptoms appear can minimize, if not eliminate, the impact on the newborn's life (allow normal growth and development).
