For people suffering from a metabolic disease, their family members, medicine students and sanitary professionals tending to them.

Metabolic diseases account for, at least, 15% to 20% of all rare illnesses. This book explains the cause of some of them, their symptoms and heritage, treatment, quality of life and near-future research possibilities. The author has chosen the most representative and well-known diseases to clarify them to you with the support of diagrams, drawings and clinical examples told by family members of the patients. To make the reading more fun, you will find nods to history of film, literature and medicine.
