Metabolic diseases is diseases or disorders that disrupt normal metabolism, the process of converting food to energy on a cellular level. Thousands of enzymes participating in numerous interdependent metabolic pathways carry out this process. Metabolic diseases affect the ability of the cell to perform critical biochemical reactions that involve the processing or transport of proteins (amino acids), carbohydrates (sugars and starches), or lipids (fatty acids).Metabolic diseases are typically hereditary, yet most persons affected by them may appear healthy for days, months, or even years. The onset of symptoms usually occurs when the bodyâ€™s metabolism comes under stressâ€”for example, after prolonged fasting or during a febrile illness. For some metabolic disorders, it is possible to obtain prenatal diagnostic screening. Such analysis usually is offered to families who have previously had a child with a metabolic disease or who are in a defined ethnic group.
Metabolic diseases are quite rare individually, but they are relatively common when considered as a group. Specific metabolic disorders have incidences ranging from approximately 1 in 500 (or even higher in isolated populations) to fewer than 1 in 1,000,000. As a group, it has been estimated that metabolic disorders affect approximately 1 in 1,000 individuals. The consequences of metabolic imbalance may be severe; mental retardation, seizures, decreased muscle tone, organ failure, blindness, and deafness may occur, depending on which enzyme is dysfunctional. In recent years, it has become apparent that even some conditions associated with multiple congenital anomalies (e.g., Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome) have an underlying metabolic cause.
