Many children born with metabolic diseases need care and treatment throughout their lives. This helps them to do the best physically and mentally and have the best possible quality of life.
We provide complete diagnostic evaluation. This includes testing for newborns with abornmal Washington state screenings, complete nutritional assessment and long-term metabolic management along with dietary treatments. Genetic counseling is available for children and adults with suspected or diagnosed inborn errors of metabolism.
At Seattle Children's we provide a long-term "medical home" for your child — a place that manages all their care to help them get the most complete care they can. We work closely with other doctors in the clinic and hospital if your child gets sick. We also help other doctors in the Northwest to provide proper care for your child.
