Living With Conditions A Chance at a Normal Life
Titus was diagnosed with Mucopolysaccharidosis Type 1 (Hurler Syndrome) through newborn screening. This timely diagnosis allowed him to receive treatment as soon as possible, which is critical in preventing excess damage from glycosaminoglycans (GAG) buildups. He began enzyme replacement therapy at one month old, and received a bone marrow transplant at three months old.
Newborn screening has given Titus the chance at the most normal life possible with Hurler Syndrome.
