How common is Very Long-Chain Acyl-Coenzyme A Dehydrogenase Deficiency (VLCADD)?

The exact incidence of Very Long-Chain Acyl-Coenzyme A Dehydrogenase Deficiency (VLCADD) is not known. It is estimated to affect 1 in 40,000 to 120,000 people.

The best person to figure out whether an individual has VLCADD is a doctor who specializes in metabolic disorders, such as a metabolic geneticist. A medical geneticist can be found by asking your doctor for a referral or looking on the American College of Medical Geneticists website.
