The AGSD-UK tries to help with all GSD Types. There are currently nine main types of Glycogen Storage Disease. Some have sub types. Use the links below or the ones in the left panel to read about each type. The other forms of GSD have very small numbers of people affected, we hope to add information about them here in due course.
There are varying numbers of people in the UK with the different GSDs, ranging from none to a few hundred. Wherever possible we appoint a volunteer Coordinator to act as a central point of contact and source of information on each GSD.
The work load of each GSD Coordinator varies according to the number of GSD members, their needs and the level of professional activity such as clinics, treatments, research, etc. These are voluntary roles and it may not be possible, or even relevant, for all co-ordinators to undertake all of the role description.
The GSD Coordinators meet formally three times per year, in addition to any of their activities during the year. These are unpaid roles. We would welcome volunteers to assist with any GSDs not listed here.
