L-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria is a debilitating and life-threatening disease of the metabolic system identified by elevated levels of hydroxy glutaric acid, classified as an autosomal recessive disease through inheritance. The parents do not have to exhibit any symptoms in order to pass it on to their offspring. Genetic testing is the only way to determine this. The test is an inexpensive and simple cheek swab which can be obtained from several labs around the world. Results are determined in a short time so there is no excuse not to test!
