An acronym for Hexokinase deficiency is HK deficiency, and it is a genetic disease. The person must be homozygous for the trait, as being heterozygous would just make the person a carrier of that mutated gene. 
The cause of hexokinase deficiency is linked to mutations of the HK gene and the encoding of the HK enzyme. The result of the mutations lead to reduction in HK activity.
