Inherited Metabolic Diseases are common enough for health, social service and education professionals to encounter them periodically, but rare enough for them to be poorly understood. They severely affect up to 1 in 10,000 people, and lead to a wide range of special needs in care and education. This guide provides specialist information on metabolic diseases for the non-specialist. In a concise, accessible and family-friendly format, each entry lists the names by which a condition is known, and explains the genetic causes of the disease, the physical effects, the patient's symptoms, and available treatments. Key diseases from all ten major groups of metabolic disorders are described, and all entries have been reviewed by Specialist Advisers. The work has been coordinated by the charity Climb, Children Living with Inherited Metabolic Diseases. This uniquely comprehensive source of information is a vital reference for hospital doctors including paediatricians, general practitioners, nurses and other health professionals, social service and education staff and managers, and the families and carers of children with the conditions.

Epidemiologists study not only the frequency of disease, but whether .

Epidemiologists study not only the frequency of disease, but whether the frequency differs across groups of people; . they study the cause-effect relationship between exposure and illness. Diseases do not occur at random; they have causes-quite often man-made causes-which are avoidable. Thus, many diseases could be prevented if the causes were known. What is the task of epidemiology and what are its strengths and weaknesses when definitions and concepts of epidemiology are applied to occupational health? This chapter addresses these questions and the ways in which occupational health hazards can be investigated using epidemiological techniques.

Epidemiology and Statistics. Although individual inborn errors of metabolism are relatively rare conditions, as a group they represent a vast and diverse collection of diseases that are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide.
