Metabolic Formulas Covered by Insurance

Finding out your baby has a metabolic disorder can be a very scary time. Many parents haven’t even heard the term “metabolic disorder” before and learning that your baby needs a specialty formula can feel very daunting.

We are here to offer a variety of specialty formulas covered through your insurance and help you understand what a metabolic disorder is.

What is a Metabolic Disorder?

A metabolic disorder gets in the way of how a baby’s body breaks down food, absorbs nutrients, or handles enzymes. These disorders can be very serious and need to be treated or they could cause development delays, organ damage, or even death.

One way to help a baby who is diagnosed with a metabolic disorder is to provide foods that limit proteins. For infants and toddlers, offering a metabolic formula is very important.

How Do I know if My Baby Has a Metabolic Disorder?

Babies are screened for disorders at birth. One of the most common metabolic disorders is phenylketonuria, or PKU. There is a blood test that babies can take that will determine if a baby has this disorder.

If your baby is diagnosed with PKU, they can be placed on a special diet to help avoid complications.

 Which Metabolic Formula is Right for My Baby?

We offer a variety of formulas that are designed for babies with metabolic disorders. These formulas were created specifically for infants and young children with metabolic disorders.

All of these formulas have been proven to help with various metabolic disorders. Visit our Metabolic Formula page to learn more about each formula and how it can help your baby who is struggling with a metabolic disorder.
