Since Propionic Acidemia is rare and a lot of people and medical professionals have not heard of it, it is important to have a letter written by your doctor in case you are have to take your child to the emergency room.   The following is a sample emergency room letter written by Dr. Barbara Burton.   If your child has any additional diagnoses, they would also be addressed in the emergency room letter.    We usually have several copies of the letter in different places (the car, diaper bag, school, care binder).
