Tools for IEM patients: Metabolic Diet App Suite

Posted by & filed under Part 03: GENERAL THEMES.

Ho et al (Molecular Genetics and Metabolism, 2016, 17: 322-327) introduced an online tool for both mobile devices and desktop computers that allows individuals with one of 15 different IEMs to plan and record meals based on individual recommendations. This app also has links to other line resources.

The app is freely available at http://www.metabolicdietapp.org. This is an excellent resource for patients to aid in the optimization of difficult to manage dietary-controlled conditions.
