2 doctors agree

In brief: Probably not

This disease is because of a defect in metabolism of leucine, isoleucine and valine, all present in protein.
I believe that mead johnosn may be making a diet for this disease but it is a long time since i had the care of a msud patient----- a very difficult disease to treat and only diet can prevent the mental retardation that is otherwise inevitable.
