Endogrinology is the study of how the body makes and uses certain hormones. If your baby's screen shows a possible endocrine disorder, such as hypothyroidism or congenital adrenal hyperplasia, further testing will be necessary. After a diagnosis, your baby's doctor may refer you to an endocrinologist, who speciliazes in this type of disorder.

Many babies have screens that are abnormal for Cystic Fibrosis, however this does not mean your baby has cystic fibrosis. If your baby’s screening is abnormal for both the first and second screen, we will test for DNA. You may need to have a test called a “Sweat test” at Primary Children’s Medical Center. If this happens, you will meet with a genetic counselor to talk about what this means. Your baby may need to follow up in the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic located at Primary Children’s Medical Center.
