Newborn screening is a public health service done in each U.S. state. Every newborn is tested for a group of health disorders that aren't otherwise found at birth.
With a blood test, your pediatrician can check for rare genetic, hormone-related, and metabolic conditions that can cause serious health problems. Newborn screening lets your pediatrician diagnose babies quickly and start treatment as soon as possible.
