Clinical Information
  • A condition in which normal metabolic processes are disrupted, usually because of a missing enzyme.
  • A congenital (due to inherited enzyme abnormality) or acquired (due to failure of a metabolic important organ) disorder resulting from an abnormal metabolic process.
  • Condition in which there is a deviation from or caused by an abnormal metabolic process; can be congenital due to inherited enzyme abnormality (inborn metabolism disorder) or acquired due to disease of an endocrine organ or failure of a metabolically important organ such as the liver.
  • Generic term for diseases caused by an abnormal metabolic process. It can be congenital due to inherited enzyme abnormality (metabolism, inborn errors) or acquired due to disease of an endocrine organ or failure of a metabolically important organ such as the liver. (stedman, 26th ed)
  • Metabolism is the process your body uses to get or make energy from the food you eat. Food is made up of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Chemicals in your digestive system break the food parts down into sugars and acids, your body's fuel. Your body can use this fuel right away, or it can store the energy in your body tissues, such as your liver, muscles and body fat.a metabolic disorder occurs when abnormal chemical reactions in your body disrupt this process. When this happens, you might have too much of some substances or too little of other ones that you need to stay healthy. You can develop a metabolic disorder when some organs, such as your liver or pancreas, become diseased or do not function normally. diabetes is an example.
