About Short-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Acyl-Coa Dehydrogenase, Short-Chain, Deficiency of, also known as scad deficiency, is related to isobutyryl-coa dehydrogenase deficiency and acyl-coa dehydrogenase deficiency, and has symptoms including lethargy, seizures and muscle weakness. An important gene associated with Acyl-Coa Dehydrogenase, Short-Chain, Deficiency of is ACADS (Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Short Chain), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Metabolism and Regulation of expression of SLITs and ROBOs. Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle, cortex and brain, and related phenotypes are failure to thrive and feeding difficulties

Major Symptoms of Short-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCAAD) deficiency is a rare genetic disorder that affects the body's ability to produce energy. The major symptoms include muscle weakness, exhaustion, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and constipation.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Short-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Short-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (SCAAD) deficiency is an autosomal recessive genetic disease that mainly affects the metabolism of short-chain acetate-CoA (acetate-CoA) in the human body. People with SCAAD may experience symptoms such as metabolic disorders, pain, and abnormal liver function. Therefore, people with SCAAD should pay attention to the following lifestyle points:

1. Adjust their diet: reduce the intake of greasy, high-calorie, and high-fat foods, eat more fiber-rich foods such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, and maintain a balanced diet. .

2. Control drinking: Drinking alcohol may aggravate SCAAD symptoms, so you should try to avoid drinking or limit drinking.

3. Moderate exercise: Moderate aerobic exercise can improve the body's metabolism and reduce symptoms, but excessive exercise should be avoided to avoid liver damage.

4. Avoid overeating: Overeating may increase the level of acetate-CoA in the body and worsen symptoms.

5. Drug treatment: Depending on the condition, the doctor may recommend that the patient take specific drugs, such as enzyme replacement therapy, drug treatment, etc. , to maintain a stable level of acetate-CoA in the body. In short, people with SCAAD should pay attention to diet, drinking, exercise, overeating and other issues under the guidance of a doctor to maintain good health.
