The Akron Children's Metabolic Clinic provides for the care and management of adults and children with metabolic disorders and their families. Read More...
The Metabolic Clinic manages patients of all ages who have an inborn error of metabolism. Genetic disorders affecting body metabolism often have specific treatments requiring special diets and/or medications. Some disorders such as phenylketonuria (PKU) may be diagnosed by routine newborn screening, but others require specialized testing to establish a diagnosis and initiate appropriate treatment.
Our center is one of six regional metabolic centers designated by the Ohio Department of Health for referral, management and treatment of infants identified with abnormal newborn screens.
