 It is essential to have a careful plan for the management of babies who are at risk of having fatty acid oxidation disorder (FAOD). These disorders include:

  • Trifunctional protein deficiency
  • Long-chain 3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (LCHAD) deficiency
  • Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (VLCAD) deficiency
  • Carnitine palmitoyl transferase (CPT) I deficiency
  • Carnitine palmitoyl transferase (CPT) II deficiency
  • Carnitine acylcarnitine translocase deficiency
  • Multiple acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MAD) deficiency (also called glutaric aciduria type II)
