Re: Anyone have a kiddo like mine?

Have you looked into metabolic disorders (ENBS, carnitine profile, urine organic acids, etc are all tests for them)? The southern states don't newborn screen for all of them, so she might have only been tested for a few. Most can cause seizures, low muscle tone, etc. Some of the rarer disorders have no simple screening test.

My daughter has a metabolic disorder and unrelated food allergies.
