What is CCDS?

Creatine helps supply energy to all cells in the body. It helps increase adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Creatine is produced in the liver, which makes it out of three amino acids: arginine, glycine and methionine. Most of our body's creatine (approximately 95%) is stored in the muscles that support the skeleton.

Cerebral Creatine Deficiency Syndromes are a group of inborn errors of creatine metabolism. In an individual, symptoms can include, but are not limited to: intellectual delays, expressive speech and language delay, autistic-like behavior, hyperactivity, seizures, and movement disorders.
