Noy Widezki is a 4 year old girl with MSUD living in Israel. She was diagnosed when she was 10 days old, and has been under the care of Dr. Orly El Peleg, Director of the Metabolic Unit at the Medical Center of Hadassah Hospital.

As Noy’s amino acid levels have been well-controlled since her first days, she has developed normally. She has her metabolic formula and receives supplemental isoleucine and valine. Her blood amino acid levels are monitored every 6 months.

Her family usually manages illnesses at home, but she went through a rough period when she was admitted into the hospital frequently.

Noy has a younger brother, Liam, who carries the MSUD gene. Her parents feel confident that with the excellent care she receives she will do well in life.
