Definition

What does BTD mean?

Biotinidase deficiency
Biotinidase deficiency is an autosomal recessive metabolic disorder in which biotin is not released from proteins in the diet during digestion or from normal protein turnover in the cell. This situation results in biotin deficiency. Biotin, sometimes called vitamin B7, is an important water-soluble nutrient that aids in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates and proteins. Biotin deficiency can result in behavioral disorders, lack of coordination, learning disabilities and seizure. Biotin supplementation can alleviate and sometimes totally arrest such symptoms.
