My 4 year old nephew was diagnosed with a metabolic disorder at birth. Only 19 known cases and 1 survivor past age 5 (in 2009). He cannot metabolize fat. His diet is all fat free processed foods, fruit, veggies. My sis in law feeds him every 2 hours and he gets special formula 1-2 a night. They allow 10 grams of fat a day and he has to take an enzyme pill to metabolize that. This of course goes against how we eat, but is there another way for him? Any biochemists around this forum?
