Pompe Disease (GSD2)

Information & Support

After the diagnosis we are ready with a great deal of information, support, friendly contacts and signposting to other services where needed.

Your Pompe resources

We’re building a new range of information resources with practical help on different aspects of day to day life with Pompe and tips from people affected.

Just click on the relevant links or get in touch if you’d like us to send hard copies and a folder to store these in.

Look out for additional sheets on Coming to terms with diagnosis, Discussing treatment options and Nutrition in the coming months and let us know what other topics you’d like included.


You may find our glossary of terms very helpful in getting to grips with the medical terminology. When you see words such as glycogen, metabolism and rhabdomyolysis underlined with a dotted line, hover over the word and our glossary will display the meaning for you.
