Fast, emergency treatment saves newborn

Updated: Mar 20

Following a non-eventful, joyous birth, baby Adi and her family returned home. They never thought they would be back at Assuta Ashdod just two weeks later when Adi suddenly became lethargic and unresponsive. The baby was immediately admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where her bloodwork indicated a severe and rare case of neonatal diabetes. In critical condition, she was put on a respirator until she could be stabilized. Adi’s parents are grateful for the lifesaving treatment and compassionate care that was provided by Assuta Ashdod Hospital. “We are so thankful to the doctors at Assuta Ashdod,” said Linor, Adi’s mom. “Things escalated so fast. One minute I had a perfectly healthy baby, and the next minute she was in great danger. We are eternally grateful we got Adi back. I feel that my baby was born twice!”
