Adipic acid is a fatty acid metabolite. Elevated levels occur with fatty oxidation defects including Beta-oxidation defects(MAD,MCAD,SCAD,VLCAD, SCHAD, LCHAD/TFP), HMG-CoA lyase deficiency, systemic carnitine deficiency, succinic semialdehyde DH deficiency, CPT II deficiency, peroxisomal diseases, glycogen storage disorders I & II, lactic acidosis, and fructose intolerance. Excessive intake of adipic acid-containing foods (such as Jell-O) and foods containing medium chain triglycerides (such as coconut oil) may also cause increased levels. Isolated high values may be seen in patients with ADD, lethargy, and seizures. (Information from: Kumps A,Duez P,Mardens Y.
