In brief: Diet
A deficiency of tyrosine amino transferase causes type 2 tyrosinemia.
Newborn screening allows for early detection though results have to be confirmed by a physician specializing in genetic metabolic disease. Treatment includes avoiding tyrosine and phenylalanine in the diet. Special formula is prescribed by the treating centers for babies.
