Glycogen Storage Disease
What is Glycogen Storage Disease
Glycogen storage diseases are inherited disorders of carbohydrate metabolism. Those with a liver GSD are prone to hypoglycaemia, or low levels of glucose in the blood.
If you have a liver GSD, the aim of your management is to minimise symptoms and promote good health, growth and development. Symptoms can vary depending on which type of GSD you have (see below for more details).
Avoiding episodes of hypoglycaemia (sometimes referred to as a ‘hypo’) is a key priority. A ‘hypo’ occurs when blood glucose levels go too low.
