With strict dietary compliance and good medical care, children with MSUD can, and do, lead relatively normal lives. Therapy must be started at the earliest possible age to achieve the best possible outcome. Careful control of the diet to insure the correct balance of the amino acid levels is the best strategy for the optimal function of persons with MSUD. There always remains the risk of brain injury during extended times of elevated leucine levels.
