- CASE FILE
I have a rare genetic condition called MCADD. Children with this usually don’t make it past their first attack.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Babies with MCADD have to eat nearly around every hour.Babies have died due to the lack of food in their stomachs and not knowing about the condition We have to have food in our stomach 24/7 if we don’t we can go into hypoglycemic shock and die. We cannot use fat as energy because we lack the enzyme that breaks down the fat. As a child I had to go to a specialist all throughout my childhood. It also makes it extremely difficult to lose weight since I can’t break down fat.
