HCys Concept

The dietary management consists of a diet low in Methionine (i.e. low in native protein) with addition of amino acids supplements free from Methionine and enriched in Cystine.

Homocystinuria

Background:
Homocystinuria is an inherited rare disorder in metabolism of the amino acid Methionine, caused by a deficiency of the enzyme Cystathione ?-synthetase. If not treated, this will lead to an accumulation of Methionine and Homocysteine in blood and urine, and at the same time to a decrease of Cystine in the body. Without treatment, this condition can result in mental retardation, eye problems and risk of thrombosis.
