(2M3HBA) 2-Methyl-3-Hydroxybutyric Acidemia

2-methyl-3-hydroxybutyric acidemia (2M3HBA) is an inherited condition in which the body is unable to break down certain proteins. This condition may also affect the body’s ability to break down certain fatty acids and to regulate some activities of the nervous system. 2M3HBA is considered an organic acid condition because it can lead to a harmful amount of certain organic acids and toxins in the body. Early diagnosis and treatment have been shown to be effective in improving the health of individuals affected by 2M3HBA.
