Solving Metabolic Mysteries 

Your Partner in Understanding Serious Illnesses

Sometimes you get more from your ancestors than blue eyes and left handedness. Metabolic diseases are inherited disorders caused by a problem with the chemicals produced naturally in the body. These diseases, which can slow physical development, lead to devastating movement disorders or cause mental retardation, are often serious and even life-threatening. The Kimberly H. Courtwright and Joseph W. Summers Institute of Metabolic Disease at Baylor Research Institute at Dallas helps diagnose and treat children and adults with metabolic diseases.
