A story of premature birth and the NICU roller coaster

Congenital thyroid, acquired thyroid problems in preterm/ newborn babies

on September 25, 2012

Please look at this info if you have any concerns or questions about neonatal or preterm babies and thyroid conditions. My son suffered and we believe died from neglected , and know mind you, thyroid issues. He wasn’t treated until two weeks before he died.

This is a good link to info on congenital thyroid. What is it and what effect can it have on babies?

Newborn screening is very important for babies, but is it accurate with preemies? Should it be repeated? When it’s repeated should it be ignored in preemies or should this be looked into ASAP and treated when necessary? This can cause severe developmental problems like Mental Retardation and even death.

Please look at this info I have posted if you have any question or concern with a thyroid condition in your newborn or preterm baby. Our son had a problem that was ignored until two weeks before he died.
