I just left my peditricians office who instructed me to look up MCAD online as I am medically minded and he knew I would research this. I have five children 3 girls and 2 boys. Unfortunately all three of my girls are showing signs of some type of metabolic issues that every single year has landed my oldest daughter (9yrs) in the hospital due to severe dehydration. Once she starts vomiting she just can't stop and she goes downhill fast. It has been a regular part of our life since she was 2 yrs. old to have to go in for fluids. My second daughter is now 3 1/2 and she started the same thing last year when she was 2 yrs old. And we just left the hospital Wednesday this week with my third daughter who just turn 2 yrs. old March 1st with the exact same issue. It always seems like a virus starts the vomiting but then it is usually game over very quickly. We have a protocol now with our MD that as soon as they vomit we start Zofran ( a medicine to stop the vomiting) it has been successful maybe 80% of the time without it we would have landed in the hospital more time than I could count. He has wondered for a while if they have partial MCAD is what he told me today.
