My brother is suffering from glutaric acidemia type 1, but I am totally healthy. I do not have any child right now, but if I have any in future, is there chance that my child will also get the same disease?

If you are carrier or one copy of defective gene and your husband is also carrier or one copy of defective gene then your baby has chance of glutaric acidemia type 1. if you husband is normal then baby will be normal
