It's important blood sugars are tested at birth for all babies. My baby almost died and has long lasting brain damage because his weren't tested. If they were tested it would have been easily treated and there would be no lasting damage, for the 30 seconds it takes considering it can save a babies life I think this should be performed on every newborn before leaving the hospital. Hypoglycemia in neonates is easily treated but if it goes untreated and undiagnosed it can be extremely dangerous and life threatening.
