Pyridoxine dependent epilepsy (PDE) App

Metabolic Diet App

Pyridoxine dependent epilepsy (PDE)
is a rare genetic disorder caused by Antiquitin (ATQ) deficiency.

Because people with PDE have problems with lysine breakdown, a lysine (protein) restricted diet has been added to regular medical treatment for PDE.

This App is designed to support families and children with PDE, treated with the lysine-restricted diet as add on therapy to vitamin B6.
