New Service At Duplin General Hospital
Detects Retardation By PKU In Infants
Duplin General Hospital is offer
ing-a new service to mothers of new
born babies. The service is called
"Protecting your baby from PKU."
PKU stands for Phenylketonuria ?
a medical name of a rare but
dreadful disease in which a baby's
body is unable to use a basic food
called phenylalaine. Mitt and other
baby foods contain phenylalaine.
Norammly a baby's body produces
a chemical which changes phely
lanine into usable food. In the baby
with PKU, however, the body does
not produce this chemical. As a re
sult, the phenylalanine in the babys
food is not used but stays in the
blood stream. Harmful substances
(principally phenylpyruvid acid )
are also formed and later can be
found in the urine.
If PKU is not detected, impaired
brain development and mental re
tardation happens, because these
harmful substances in the baby's
body interfere with the normal de
velopment of the train and nerve
system during the first months of
life. The result may be a severe
mental retardation called phenyl
pyruvic oligophrenia. Without pro
per treatment, these babies wfll
eventually show less than 50 per
cent of normal intelligence. Half
of them cannot even learn to talk,
and almost all ned care in an in

Even though PKU is a rare dise
ase, all babies should be tested.
There are two kinds of tests, urine
and blood. The urine .'est is simple
and painless. A test called PHENIS
TIX is pressed against a wet diaper
or dipped into a specimen of the
baby's urine. The test strip changes
color if the baby has PKU.
Each mother of a new born babe
at Duplin General hospital will be
given a kit to take home with her
to test the baby' urine for the first
several weeks. If the disease shows
up the baby can be treated by spec
