My client has had 2 incidents of Rhabdomyolysis, both happened during extreme physical exercise (hockey), and he ended up briefly in the hospital. What tests can I run to find his specific cause of fatty acid oxidation for a discussion with his doctor?

There are quite a few genetic and metabolic causes of exercise induced rhabdomyolysis.
Your client should be seen be a metabolic and/or a genetic physician for a complete evaluation,
likely to include genetic testing.
I hope this helps. Dr. Vockley
