Treating hyperammonemia due to NAGS deficiency

Be prepared to act quickly to diagnose this serious, rare genetic disorder that can present suddenly in neonates and suddenly or chronically in individuals with late-onset NAGS deficiency (NAGSD). Rapid progression to a hyperammonemic crisis can occur in anyone with the disorder. Prescribe your patients an FDA-approved proven treatment that can be the key to normalizing high blood ammonia levels.
