Metabolism 101: Introduction to Metabolism for the Non-Metabolic
This introductory tutorial outlines a classification system for grouping and understanding the inborn errors. Many disorders of basic intermediary metabolism (disorders of protein, carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism), and the metabolism of complex molecules (e.g., lysosomal storage diseases) are introduced here, showing how they fit into the classification scheme. Interactive case studies allow users to develop the skills to properly recognize and classify common metabolic disorders and identify treatable disorders.

This enduring internet activity has no commercial support
- Identify the reasons for “thinking metabolic” in clinical practice
- Develop a classification system for thinking about metabolic disease
- Recognize how defective intermediary metabolism results in disease
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Nemours and the Genetic Metabolic Center for Education. Nemours is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Dr. Arnold previously served as Professor of Pediatrics as well as Clinical Director of the Division of Medical Genetics (2010 – 2016) at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. She brings 25 years of experience in the diagnosis and care of patients with inborn errors of metabolism. She has extensive experience in teaching including students, residents and faculty, and was a charter faculty member at the North American Metabolic Academy (the premier training conference for genetic trainees on this continent).
Dr. Arnold has published more than 50 peer reviewed articles and book chapters, has presented papers at national and international meetings, and was awarded the Shapira Award in 2010 for “A Delphi clinical practice protocol for the management of very long chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency.” She is sought after as a teacher with a gift for making metabolism understandable for all audiences.
Dr. Arnold graduated from SUNY Upstate Medical University and and completed pediatric residency at Children’s Memorial Hospital at Nothwestern University. She completed her fellowship in genetics and metabolism in 1991 at the University of Colorado. She was Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry until 2010 where she directed care for patients with metabolic and genetic disorders.
