Exercise and subsequent catabolism is a potential trigger for creatine kinase (CK) concentration increase (rhabdomyolysis) in patients with LCHADD, therefore we evaluated the clinical and biochemical stability under physical exertion conditions at the age of 13 years in a currently 14-year-old LCHADD patient treated with heptanoate.LCHADD was diagnosed during first decompensation at age 20 months. In the following 2 years, the patient had several episodes of rhabdomyolysis. Heptanoate 0.5-1 g… CONTINUE READING
