Urea Cycle Disorder


The Urea Cycle Disorder Diagnosis Information Page is intended to provide information on Urea Cycle Disorder and to help those with Urea Cycle Disorder find assistance paying for their medications.

Urea Cycle Disorder is a genetic disorder caused by a deficiency of an enzyme in the urea cycle, which is responsible for removing ammonia from blood. In a healthy urea cycle nitrogen, a waste product of metabolized protein, is changed into a compound called urea, transferred into the urine and removed from the body. For those living with Urea Cycle Disorders, the nitrogen accumulates in the form of highly toxic ammonia and then travels to the brain through the blood, where it can cause irreversible brain damage, coma or even death.
