  • (1888PressRelease) December 11, 2015 - At least 5 to 15 percent of newborns are sick due to metabolic disorders in our country.

    Newborn screening can help in picking up early signs of a number of metabolic disorders and improve the long-term health of babies.

    When a baby has a metabolic disorder, the body of the infant can't break down the food correctly and converts it into energy or fuel, which can cause the body to have too much or too little of certain substances like amino acids, phenylalanine, and blood sugar. These disorders when left untreated can cause severe illness and even death. Newborn screenings can detect these metabolic disorders and allow your baby to be treated before symptoms arise.

    A very few hospitals in India have been doing Newborn Screening for metabolic disorders. Cloudnine Hospitals are among those few hospitals that have been doing this. Cloudnine has been conducting this Newborn screenings for years and as a result, they have been successful in saving more than 100 babies from the rare metabolic diseases or identified as metabolic disease. Cloudnine also has Dr. Anil Jalan, a Paediatrician - specialized in metabolic disorders, who visits Cloudnine quarterly to conduct clinic sessions and necessary investigations on any babies belonging to this group. He will be at Cloudnine on 23rd of December 2015 for his quarterly visit.

    As an appreciation of this great cause, Emory University, Atlanta, USA has invited Dr. Kishore to speak on this topic on 15th Dec 2015.
