Mission and History

Our Mission

The Association for Creatine Deficiencies’ mission is to eliminate the challenges of Cerebral Creatine Deficiency Syndromes through education, advocacy, and medical research.

How we started

The Association for Creatine Deficiencies (ACD) was established in 2012, by parents with children diagnosed with a Cerebral Creatine Deficiency Syndrome (CCDS).

Because CCDS mimic symptoms of other medical conditions, patients are often misdiagnosed. Proper diagnosis and early intervention are critical to establish treatments needed to improve life quality and longevity for the CCDS patient.

The ACD was established to raise awareness and education of CCDS among the medical community, as well as the general public, and to advocate on behalf of families and patients living with Cerebral Creatine Deficiency Syndromes.
