The main aim of this study was to develop a comprehensive nutritional planning expert system for inborn errors of amino acid metabolism (IEAAM). Metabolic Nutri-Expert System, integrated in the electronic nutritional history record, was designed to accelerate either dietitian or patient/parent knowledge acquisition and education about the particular disease and propose culturally appropriate low protein diet to improve metabolic control or maintain the present health status. The Genetic…

Metabolic Diet App Suite for inborn errors of amino acid metabolism.
The Metabolic Diet App Suite aids individuals affected by IEMs to track and plan their meals and future research should evaluate its impact on patient adherence, metabolic control, quality of life and health-related outcomes.
Nutritional treatment for inborn errors of metabolism: indications, regulations, and availability of medical foods and dietary supplements using phenylketonuria as an example.
The nutritional treatment of phenylketonuria is used as an example of IEM treatment and a discussion of the problems that have contributed to the paradox of identifying individuals with IEM through newborn screening but not guaranteeing that they receive optimal treatment.
Dietary protein counting as an alternative way of maintaining metabolic control in phenylketonuria.
Phe levels over 6months were comparable to pre-study levels and protein exchanges (foods containing less than 50mg Phe/serve uncounted) are an alternative method of measuring Phe intake in the dietary management of Phenylketonuria.
Inborn errors of metabolism in infancy and early childhood: an update.
The early and specific diagnosis of inborn errors of metabolism and prompt initiation of appropriate therapy are still the best determinants of outcome for these patients.
Inborn metabolic disorders – An update
Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of IMDs have improved the outlook for many of these conditions so that early diagnosis, if possible in infancy, can be helpful, and awareness among the researchers on many clinical manifestations of IMD will be raised.
Long-term metabolic follow-up and clinical outcome of 35 patients with maple syrup urine disease
Adults had increased levels of plasma leucine, consistent with greater chronic toxicity, and psychological care was associated with age and number of decompensations, which appeared to be crucial in the management of MSUD patients.
"MY PKU": increasing self-management in patients with phenylketonuria. A randomized controlled trial
Increased self-management in PKU by providing patients and/or parents their Phe values without advice is feasible and safe and is highly appreciated.
Towards self-monitoring and self-treatment in phenylketonuria — a way to better diet compliance
It has been a long established principle in the treatment of diabetes that the patient or his/her family is responsible for day-to-day monitoring of metabolic control. It is believed that this
Aminoacidopathies and organic acidurias in Tunisia: a retrospective survey over 23 years.
BACKGROUND Inborn errors of metabolism are neglected in developing countries because they are not as common as infectious and nutritional disorders. In Tunisia, no information is available on the
Inborn Errors of Metabolism
The sensitivity of a screening procedure for inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) in 566 referred, high-risk patients and the simple inclusion of thin-layer chromatography of urinary oligosaccharides in the SP should allow the detection of at least one half of these cases, increasing its sensitivity by 14.1 percent and its efficiency by 4.6 percent.
