Amino Acid Metabolism Disorders

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

Metabolism is the procedure your body uses to make energy from the food you eat. Your gastrointestinal system breaks the food parts down into acids and sugars, your body's fuel. Your body can use this fuel right away, or it can store the energy in your body. One group of these disorders is amino acid metabolism disorders. Amino acids are "building blocks" that join together to create proteins. Or there may be a trouble getting the amino acids into your cells. A child who is birthed with one might not have any symptoms right away. Some infants may also require extra therapies if there are complications.
