SIDS Cause Uncovered

SIDS Cause Uncovered

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome leads all other causes in wrenching infants from their parents. SIDS is still not very well understood. One study uncovered the cause in about 2% of SIDS deaths.

According to the study results,  some children lack an enzyme necessary to use stored food energy – they lapse into a coma and die if they go too many hours without eating.

Scientists are working on a test for this disorder.

In the meantime, infants with a family history of SIDS should be fed at least every 4 hours. Each time a cause of SIDS is discovered, we come a little closer to preventing this horrible event.
