Extractions: Fatty Oxidation Disorders (FODs) are genetic metabolic deficiencies in which the body is unable to oxidize (breakdown) fatty acids to make energy because an enzyme is either missing or not working correctly. The main source of energy for the body is a sugar called glucose. Normally when the glucose runs out, fat is broken down into energy. However, that energy is not readily available to children and adults with an FOD. If undiagnosed and untreated, these disorders can lead to serious complications affecting the liver, heart, eyes and general muscle development, and possibly death. Symptoms

The main source of energy is glucose, and when the body runs out of glucose, fat is broken down into energy. People with a FOD do not have access to this energy due to their metabolic condition.

Extractions: Expansion of Newborn Screening This newsletter is to announce that on April 3rd, 2000 , the newborn screening laboratory will begin reporting results for 14 Fatty Acid Oxidation and Organic Acidemia disorders. This will bring the number of disorders screened for in Wisconsin to 21. Topics included in this newsletter are: a brief description of Fatty Acid Oxidation and Organic Acidemia disorders, how this group of disorders meet the Wisconsin criteria for screening, the technology used to detect these disorders, and the reporting scheme. Fatty Acid Oxidation and Organic Acidemia Disorders Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders (FOD) are a class of inborn errors of matabolism where there is an enzyme defect in the fatty acid metabolic pathway which inhibits the body's ability to utilize stored fat. Clinical symptoms of FOD inclue hypotonia, lethargy, and vomiting; the hypoglycemia can lead to coma, encephalopathy, hepatic failure, or death. The following table lists those FOD that will be detected and reported. Fatty Acid Oxidation Disorders Abbreviation Prevalence (est) Medium Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency MCAD 3-Hydroxyacyl CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency LCHAD Very Long Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency VLCAD Unknown Short Chain Acyl-CoA Dehydrogenase Deficiency SCAD Unknown
