The AGSD-UK provides support and help for individuals and families affected by Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD). We put people in contact with others to reduce isolation, we provide information through this website, books, leaflets and newsletters, and we hold conferences and workshops. Find out more about us and what we do by exploring the menus above or using the site map.

Glycogen is a stored form of glucose, which is used as a fuel for energy. Glycogen Storage Disease occurs when there is an absence or deficiency of an enzyme needed to produce or break down glycogen. GSD primarily affects the liver and/or the muscles.

Order your 2019 Calendars here

Conceived by Gemma Seyfang, our 2019 calendar was created through a competition asking those in the GSD community to choose a photo/quote of what they thought represented Achievements, Goals, Success and Determination.

We are delighted with the final selection which was chosen by the medical team at Addenbrookes Hospital by the Cambridge Clinical Research Centre.

Bake or Burn Campaign - Making Calories Count!

Whether you prefer to bake-off or burn-off calories, you can join our calorific campaign to raise funds and awareness for kids living with GSD.
 
BAKING  - Self-raising awareness
If you prefer baking then why not hold a cake sale for your friends or work colleagues? Of course you don’t have to make cakes; you can cook anything you like; how about selling hot soup and bread rolls after a brisk country walk? Or hold a “Come Dine with Me” evening for friends and neighbours?
 
BURNING – £ for lb?
If you’re more of the active type; then try a sponsored walk, run, cycle, swim or any other activity to burn off a few calories. You can join an organised event or make up one of your own with family and friends.
