In brief: Special diet, etc...

For metabolic disorders, the genetics specialists at a children's hospital is the best source of help.
The site http://www.Newbornscreening.Info/parents/organicaciddisorders/ga1.Html#4 has good info on glutaric aciduria treatment. One goal is to avoid infections, which would make a baby not eat and get internal stress (metabolic crisis occurs, leading to more brain damage). So, vaccines are good.
