 susan_01 - Sat May 07, 2005 5:50 am

[color=darkblue][/color I have a family memeber who was just told her daughter had glutaric aciduria genetic neurological/metobolic degenerative disorder. I need information on this disorder, treatment options, the causes, and the out come perspective. Can or will this cause retardation in children, and what is the life expectancy for kids with this disorder. Is there and organization or league of doctors that specialize in this area? Please help as this little girl is only 9 months of age, and are a military family seeking help with this and along with information.

Thank you most sincerely,
