Purpose of this website
acyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase deficiency or MCAD deficiency is an
inherited metabolic disorder where the patient has a problem with
breaking down fat. The disorder is rare and relatively unknown amongst
care takers who are not specialized in metabolic disorders.
This website is made by the mother of a patient with MCAD
deficiency. What started as some research on the internet in order to
better understand the explanations of the doctor has grown into a
website with as much information as possible on MCAD deficiency.
purpose of this website is to share the results of this research with
other patients with MCAD deficiency and their parents because they may
have the same
questions and the same need for information.
The information can be read sequentially or per theme.
Also the page with frequently asked questions can be a good starting point.
theoretical part, this website is also meant to collect testimonies of
people with MCAD deficiency as well as to discuss - anonymously - about
issues and matters that are important for patients with MCAD deficiency
I studied computer science and am not a doctor nor a
scientist. The information on this website has not yet been validated by an
expert in the field of MCAD deficiency and might contain errors! Always
contact your doctor in case you have questions!
