About Very Long-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Acyl-Coa Dehydrogenase, Very Long-Chain, Deficiency of, also known as vlcad deficiency, is related to galactosemia i and complement component 2 deficiency, and has symptoms including lethargy and vomiting. An important gene associated with Acyl-Coa Dehydrogenase, Very Long-Chain, Deficiency of is ACADVL (Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Very Long Chain), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Metabolism and Fatty acid metabolism. The drugs Bezafibrate and Glycerin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle, liver and heart, and related phenotypes are increased circulating free fatty acid level and hypothermia

Major Symptoms of Very Long-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (ALADH2) deficiency is a rare genetic disorder that affects the body's ability to produce energy. The major symptoms include:

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Very Long-Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Suitable lifestyle options for people with Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency include:

1. Healthy diet: This disease is related to the lack of certain ingredients in the diet, so patients should avoid or reduce the intake of these ingredients. It is recommended to increase the intake of plant-based protein, vitamin B and folic acid, while limiting the intake of saturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids.

2. Supplement essential fatty acids: Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency is a disease caused by a lack of essential fatty acids. Patients may need to supplement with essential fatty acids found in foods such as fish oil, deep-sea fish, flax seeds, and sunflower seeds.

3. Appropriate exercise: Studies have shown that appropriate exercise can increase the level of essential fatty acids in the body, thereby improving the symptoms of Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency. Patients should perform appropriate exercises according to their own conditions, such as walking, jogging, etc.

4. Maintain mental health: Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency may cause patients to suffer from depression, anxiety and other psychological problems. Patients should maintain good mental health, such as participating in psychotherapy and receiving social support.

5. Follow your doctor's recommendations: Patients should follow their doctor's treatment recommendations and get regular checkups. Based on the examination results, the doctor may adjust the patient's diet and lifestyle recommendations.
