3-alpha-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase deficiency

3-alpha-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase deficiency: Introduction

3-alpha-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase deficiency: A rare inherited form of biochemical disorder characterized by the deficiency of a particular enzyme (3-Hydroxyacyl-CoA Dehydrogenase). The enzyme deficiency only affects certain body tissues, in particular the skeletal muscles. The lack of enzyme activity prevents some fats being converted into energy. Symptoms tend to be exacerbated during fasting as during fasting, the body tries to rely more heavily on fats for energy. Fatty acids that are not completely metabolized due to the enzyme deficiency may build up in various organs and cause serious complications. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of 3-alpha-hydroxyacyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenase deficiency is available below.
