What is NAGS deficiency?

NAGS (N-acetylglutamate synthase) deficiency is a rare genetic disorder that blocks or limits your body’s ability to remove excess ammonia. This leads to excess ammonia building up in your blood. High blood ammonia levels may lead to brain damage or even death if symptoms are not treated.
