What is the Alkaptonuria Urine Test? Alkaptonuria is a rare genetic condition that affects only a small number of individuals. The problem arises when your body is unable to produce enough homogentisate dioxygenase, an enzyme (HGD). In order to degrade homogentisic acid, a toxic molecule, this enzyme must be present in the body.
When HGD levels are low, the body produces more homogenetic acid, which accumulates in the body. In addition to discoloration, homogentisic acid causes brittleness in the bones and cartilage.
