Type 1 diabetes is an example of a metabolic disease.
Metabolic diseases are often hereditary, meaning they are passed to you from a family member. Patients may not experience any symptoms for a long period. But if the body is stressed (for example after a long illness) symptoms can appear. Symptoms vary widely depending on the type of metabolic disease.

Treatment for metabolic disorders varies with the symptoms. Inherited metabolic disorders may be treated using nutritional guidance, physical therapy, regular assessments and support. In some cases medication to control symptoms can be effective.

It is important to get a correct diagnosis followed by treatment and support. Our experienced consultants can diagnose and treat and provide the support you need in a hospital near you.
