metabolic disorders are individually rare but collectively constitute a major
problem in our communities where the consanguineous marriages are common and
the number of patients who are affected in each family is high. Our clinic is
dealing with many different diseases related to genetic or metabolic alterations.
The diagnosis is based on detailed clinical history, physical examination by
experienced team and the diagnosis is confirmed by performing important
laboratory tests including urine test for organic acids, plasma test for amino
acid, filter paper test for Acylcarnitine profile, enzyme assays, molecular DNA
testing, and other specific tests e.g. for Tyrosinemia and Oxalosis. The clinic
is an independent facility, as patients can visit directly or in collaboration
with King Abdullah University Hospital (KAUH) and Royal Medical Services (RMS).
Our clinic has been running for over 7 years, and administrated by a consultant
physician in pediatric, genetic and metabolic diseases.
