Does every newborn have to do tests for the inborn errors of metabolism?


I just received a letter from the inborn errors of metabolism for my son and they want certain tests done. i called the doctor that saw my son in the hospital but he didn't help me much when it came to explaining this to me. my 3 week old wont see his doctor until the 12th but has anyone else had to get tests done for their child and can someone explain what this means because im freaking out right now. thanks.

Check the links below for more information on inborn errors or metabolism. Some tests that are perfomed on infants are required by law, so it could be the doctor fulfilling what is required by law.

If it were me in your shoes, I would be relieved that the hospital and/or physicians are testing your child - it will save you a lot of heartache later on IF (if being a very big word) anything is wrong. Getting a problem diagnosed early will help with proper treatment and it will save your little one a lot of suffering, too IF (again that big word) they do find something.

Please be very calm through the whole process and consider it nothing out of the ordinary - as minor as vaccinations or a simple well baby check up.

Get with other relatives who have babies the same age or older and talk to them - it will help you through this. If you don't have anyone close by, ask about a new mother's support group in your area - talking things through with others in your same situation will really help you. New moms have a lot of concerns that a lot of times turn out to be not such a big deal and something that is very common - my wife went through this, so I understand your concerns.  (+ info)

My son has Shwachman-Diamond syndrome. His does not make ANY pancreatic enzymes needed to break down food.

Inborn error of metabolism comprise a large class of genetic diseases involving disorders of metabolism .The majority are due to defects of single genes . Inborn errors of metabolism are now referred to as congenital metabolic diseases or inherited metabolic diseases . Hope this information helps .  (+ info)

Is down syndrome an inborn error of metabolism?


Please only answer this if you really understand the quetion, no offense.
----------

It is an extra copy of a chromosome, down syndrome points to which chromosome has the problem. There are other forms that affects different chromosomes. They are all considered a trisomy since there are three copies instead of the usual 2. "Trisomy" is typically followed by a number, which is the number of the affected chromosome.

The genetic code is decided by the taking half of the maternal and half the paternal gene code. If there is a problem, it is replicated in the division of cell process that happens in the embryonic stage of development. Many of the other trisomies are not compatible with life. They can live in the womb but usually pass away soon after birth. There can be a partial affect (mosaic) or it can affect all cells. The extra chromosome interferes with the normal development of the cells and systems.  (+ info)

Does Listening To Heavy Metal Boost Metabolism?


Ok I was wondering if listening to heavy metal boosts your metabolism. I think it might because it makes you exited and pumped up and I guess the rapid fireing of electrons in your brain do to exitement might some how speed up your metabolism. Do you share my logic if so why and if not why.
----------

i do. if i want to feel more bad ass/ pumped up, ill listen to some heavy metal.
preferably some deathclock or amon amarth.  (+ info)

How fast does your metabolism get when you exercise?


I mean when you are exercising at that very moment and after. Does your metabolism really get fast? What if you dont exercise at all one or two days, will your metabolism still be fast?
----------

The rate of your metabolism is dependent upon your age, sex, weight, body composition, etc. Your metabolism will increase while you are exercising to provide your body with the fuel it needs, but the number of calories burned or the rate at which it increases depends on the type of exercise you are doing. Studies have shown that if you do high intensity exercise, your metabolism will stay revved up for anywhere from 24-48 hours later. Doing resistance training (with some sort of weight) will increase your lean muscle tissue. This in itself increases your metabolism, even when you are not working out. The more lean muscle tissue you have, the faster your metabolism will be.  (+ info)

How long will it take for my metabolism to adjust to a regular Diet and exercise program?


I am 40 years old and diabetic and have decided to start a diet and exercise program in order to lose weight and get healthy. I was wondering how long it would take for my metabolism to adjust to the diet and exercise program? Since I am 40 and diabetic will my body automatically boost my metabolism because of the diet and exercise program or will I have to take drastic measures in order to boost my metabolism?
----------

The best place to start would be light exercises until your ready to do more than say 10 minutes or so, second eating the right food like fruit and vegetables, and most of all don't give up hope, it will happening one day and unfortunate it can't happen overnight it takes time. I weigh 257.9lbs and am trying desperately to lose weight so I know were you come from. Try this website for low fat recipes.  (+ info)

How do I increase my metabolism and eat more without gaining weight?


Im 16 and i've been dieting for about 3 months now and i lost the weight that i wanted to. I've only been taking in about 1800 calories and ive been burning off about 900 through intense exercise each day. Im guessing that the dedicate in calories each day has slowed my metabolism and now I want to keep exercising the way i have been but start staying the same weight so how can I eat more and increase my metabolism without gaining weight.
----------

If you're still exercising then hopefully you should be able to gradually increase your calories without starting to put on the weight, ie increase your metabolism. But make sure the calories come from protein and veggies/salads and not from carby foods like sugar, sugary drinks, cookies, potato snacks etc or the 'bad' fats such as transfats.

For more detail on why it's crucial to eat enough protein, and not to drastically reduce your calories long term if you want to keep your metabolism up, see my article at http://www.lowcarbiseasy.com/lose_weight_fast_crash_diet.htm.  (+ info)

How do you make your metabolism faster in order to lose weight?


How do make your metabolism faster in order to lose weight? What slows it down? I have always had a good metabolism. Was able to eat what i wanted and didn't gain weight. I am 34.

Metabolism is essentially the speed at which our body's motor is running. The speed at which our body burns calories is called

the metabolic rate. It's how fast your "motor" is running when you're still in a reclined position or sleeping. About 60-75% of

energy is expended by the body at rest in such activities.

The metabolism is based on the number of calories we burn throughout the day. Our body constantly burns calories to keep us

going whether we are eating, sleeping, cleaning etc. People with a lower percentage of body fat (i.e. muscular) have a higher

metabolism than others that are less muscular because muscle uses more calories to maintain itself than fat. Some people have a

slower metabolic rate and have a harder time staying slim. Younger persons have higher (faster) metabolism because of the

increased activity of cells. A slow metabolism actually causes to store fat. The slower the metabolic rate, the greater the weight

gains. How to build muscles to improve metabolism? What type of exercise is ideal that speed up metabolism so that you burn

calories even at rest or sleep? There are simple exercises that speed up the metabolism.

Causes for Low Metabolism

* Fasting
* A low calorie diet
* Snacking throughout the day on high sugared foods (candy, colas,
cakes, gum).
* Eating or drinking too much sugar containing foods.
* Lack of physical activity.
* Underactive thyroid.

Metabolism Boosters

There are some natural metabolism boosters (natural foods) that improves your metabolism. Do not take over the counter pills

containing animal thyroid extract that claim to boost up metabolism. These products may have side effects as diarrhea, increased

heart rate, excessive sweating, nervousness, tremors, bulging eyes, etc.

How to Improve (Speed up) Metabolism

* Do not skip any meals
* Exercise daily
* Build your muscles
* Avoid alcohol, sugar, and fastings
*Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.
*Eat foods with high nutrition values  (+ info)
