Phenylketonuria and Galactosemia.
Two disorders screened for in every state because they are disastrous if not caught early (and happen to be a contraindication to breast feeding...)
Deficient G1p-uridyl- transferase. G1p accum to damage kidney, liver, brain.
• Sxs = MR direct hyperbili & jaundice, ↓glc, cataracts, seizures.
• Predisposed to E. coli sepsis.
• No lactose por vida.
• Deficient Phe hydrolxalase.
• Sxs = MR, vomiting, athetosis, seizures, developmental delay over 1st few mos
• Signs = fair hair, eyes, skin, musty smell.
• Low Phe diet.
Physiologic Jaundice. Gone by 5th DOL.
Liver conjugation not yet mature.
3 days old, bili @ 10, direct is 0.5. Eating & pooping well.
Breast feeding Jaundice. ↓feeding = dehydration = retain meconium & re- absorb deconjugated bili.
7 days old, bili @ 12, direct is 0.5. dry mucous membranes, not gaining weight.
Breast milk Jaundice. Breast milk has glucuronidase and de-conj bili.
14 days old, bili @ 12, direct is 0.5. Baby regained birth weight, otherwise healthy.
Pathologic Jaundice = on 1st DOL, bili >12, d-bili >2, rate of rise >5/day.
Positive: Rh or ABO incompatability
Negative: twin/twin or mom/fetus transfusion, IDM, spherocytosis, G6p-DH deficiency, etc.
1 day old, bili @ 14, direct is 0.5. Are you worried? Next best test? If positive? If negative?

Indirect bili can cross BBB, deposit in basal ganglia and brainstem nuclei and cause
. (esp if bili is >20)
Why do we care about hyperbilirubinemia?
Phototherapy (Tbil>20)--> ionizes the uncoj bili so it can be excreted.
Double volume exchange transfusion (Tbil>25) if that doesn't work.
