Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD) App

Metabolic Diet App

Maple Syrup Urine Disease (MSUD)

is a genetic disorder caused by a deficiency in alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase, an enzyme needed to break down branch chain amino acids.

Patients are prescribed a protein restricted diet to prevent elevated levels of Leu, Ile and Val, and thus preventing brain damage.

This App is designed to support families and children with MSUD on protein restricted diets.
