I'm a first time mom and i know this newborn screening came late in our generation. When my son had his newborn screening, hospital found out a postive on their test/s. My son has a G6PD defeciency. At first i was shocked and panic but when they explained to me i understand i'll just be more careful to the food that he should avoid. how about your child did they have their newborn screening too? i hope it's a good result :D Godabless!0=)

hi myralmedo. my daughter also had her screening and it turned out ok. i am so glad that we have this newborn screening now. at least we can now prevent certain conditions from arising in our kids.
