  1. pku test

    A PKU test, also known as the Phenylketonuria test, is a standard screening test given to newborns shortly after birth. This test involves taking a small blood sample from the baby's heel which is then analyzed for high levels of phenylalanine, an amino acid that can build up in the blood and brain, potentially causing brain damage. Phenylketonuria is a rare genetic disorder that inhibits the body's ability to metabolize this amino acid. By detecting it early, appropriate dietary adjustments can be made to prevent the condition from causing serious health problems.
