Newborn Screening in Humble TXNewborn screening is the required testing of every newborn to check for harmful and potentially fatal disorders, that without the test, are otherwise undetectable. A simple blood test will be required in order to check for these conditions. While the conditions tested for are rare and most babies will be given a clear pass, catching them early on can make a huge difference in the development of your child. Some of the conditions checked for during your newborn screening are: phenylketonuria, congenital hypothyroidism, galactosemia, sickle cell disease, biotinidase deficiency, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, maple syrup urine disease, tyrosinemia, cystic fibrosis, MCAD deficiency, severe combined immunodeficiency, toxoplasmosis, and more.
