What causes these conditions?

Conditions on the newborn screening panel can be the result of several factors. Some conditions are genetic, while some are not. If hearing loss or another condition is detected in your baby's screening, your baby may be referred to a genetic counselor for more testing to determine if the cause is related to genetics.
