In order to check whether a child is growing normally it is important to see whether the child is growing normally height wise, i.e. whether the height of the child is growing according to the charts given by the medical experts, it includes even short children who are growing quite normally. In case your child is not growing according to the given charts it is necessary that the pediatrician be consulted immediately.

Treatment of congenital metabolic systems is possible earlier than normal, the technique of newborn screening makes it possible to identify the metabolic disease earlier on and helps proper diagnosing and medical treatment of the child possible within given time frame. Different techniques like mass spectrometry help finding the root of metabolic problem, thereby helping the doctors treat this disease from the very beginning; this technique has also helped reducing curable metabolic problems amongst children.

Metabolic problems are different in normal adults and children.
