It's an inborn error of metabolism...you know when your baby is born they do those PKU tests...it's one of the tests they do that test for.

My son died of an inborn error of metabolism called nonketotic hyperglycinemia...many times it means the baby can not metabolize certain proteins in their bodies.

I had no idea that was one of the tests... btw, I am sorry this happened to your son.  Thank you for making me more aware.
