MMA Research

Methylmalonic acidemia is an inherited disorder in which the body is unable to process certain proteins and fats (lipids) properly. It's a relatively new rare disorder that we still don't know a lot about. Most hospitals have now started conducting MMA screening in all new borns with a prick on their heal. 
The effects of methylmalonic acidemia, which usually appear in early infancy, vary from mild to life-threatening.
Affected infants experience vomiting, dehydration, weak muscle tone (hypotonia), excessive tiredness (lethargy), and failure to gain weight and grow at the expected rate (failure to thrive).
Long-term complications can include feeding problems, intellectual disability, chronic kidney disease, and inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis). Without treatment, this disorder can lead to coma and death in some cases.

A local livingston county boy was diagnosed with MMA at birth; he is now a typical 9 year old but the battle continues to keep him healthy. Please go to this link to see how you can help.
