Helping you to find the information you need… patient, carer, family, friend or employer, if you are affected by Glycogen Storage Disease help is at hand. These links will take you to the information you need.
Read our brief introduction “What is Glycogen Storage Disease”. That page will then take you on to the list of GSD variants so that you can access our information section on the particular GSD which you are are affected by. Whatever your question, it matters to you so it matters to us too. If the answer is not there, please contact us.
Make contact with those with experience
Contact the GSD Coordinator who has the same condition or they care for family members who have it. Then meet with others with experience of your GSD. Contact us, we’ll try to find someone local or in a similar situation and, with their permission only, connect you.
There are so few people with my condition
Having a rare condition can feel very isolating so find out more about meetings, conferences and events. Often members say to us, “This is one the place I come where I do not have to explain my condition”. What information is there to help me? .
We also have a range of different events at which you can meet others with GSD – for example: Family Days, Kids’ Camps, Children & Parents events, and Walking Courses.
What information is available?
Check our leaflets, publications and other resources. Our information is written or compiled by members and professionally reviewed, so it is reliable. Past newsletters contain a wealth of knowledge, stories and guidance collated over years.
