ADENOSINE MONOPHOSPHATE DEAMINASE & TREATMENT
Definition: What is "Adenosine monophosphate deaminase"?
Adenosine monophosphate deaminase (AMD) is a type of muscle-specific deficiency that is a common cause of many exercise-induced myopathy & is one of the most common causes of metabolic myopathy among human beings.
Symptoms & Signs
The key indicators of AMD include the existence of drusens that start to enlarge. Blurry central vision is also one of the symptoms & patients should undergo visual acuity test to determine if the central vision is lost.
Treatment: How to Treat "Adenosine monophosphate deaminase"?
Treatments for AMD involve exercise modulation for patients as well as to closely monitor physical activities. Symptomatic relief can also be achieved by administering correct dosage of ribose which is taken orally, dosage depends of the body weight of the patient.
The AMD deficiency may be asymptomatic or it can also be caused by exercise induced cramping or myalgias. For symptomatic patients, they don't accumulate ammonia during exercise as most people normally do.
The diagnosis for AMD remains to be quite difficult since it is generally nonspecific manifestations that can cross a number of medical specialties & the existence of disease variants. Urinary uric acid & creatinine ratio can become valuable & simple tests can imply diagnostic possibility of metabolic-related disorders.
