3-methylglutaconic aciduria, type III
Is there cure for 3-methylglutaconic aciduria type 3?
There is no cure for 3-methylglutaconic aciduria type 3. Treatment is available to assist with symptoms of the condition. Vision loss and movement problems are treated in the same ways they would be in a person without 3-methylglutaconic aciduria type 3. For individuals with vision problems, a referral to an ophthalmologist would be suggested. Individuals with movement symptoms may be referred to see a neurologist, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, and physiatrists. Individuals may also consult a pulmonologist if they are having problems with sleep apnea and difficulty breathing. The assessments by the various specialists would then recommend treatment to assist with the symptoms of 3-methylglutaconic acuduria type 3.
