In all disorders it might not be possible due to late diagnosis, but i know one case wherein my friends baby had fatty acid oxidation disorder where body cannot convert fat into glucose for energy, in such cases babies often expire unexpectedly , bt luckily for my friend he had already done newborn screening where the doctor came to know abt the disorder quite early and the treatment was started immediately which was feeding the child after every 2-3 hours and now their child is quite healthy.
