How to Treat Medium-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency (MCADD)?


Medical Treatment:
  • There is no specific treatment for MCADD
  • Adults and children have MCADD can eat a normal diet, as long as they are:
  • Special high sugar drinks are frequently taken when they are ill (common illnesses such as diarrhea, vomiting, or fever)
  • Avoid long periods without eating during the newborn period and infancy even when well
  • If the drinks do not help or your child refuses them, they may need hospital treatment
