The AGSD-UK 2015 conference was a great success:

I can't thank you and the AGSD-UK team enough for the superb organisation of the conference this year! The workshops and range of speakers was fantastic. It was so good to meet the key physicians who are helping with the condition. Another incredible outcome of the conference was that our daughter made two friends the same age as her whom we intend to meet with and to keep in contact with. As the condition is rare it is invaluable that she has friends to share her struggles with. It is also great that my husband and I now have friends who are GSD parents too! What a fantastic thing you do - thank you so much, from all of us!

Glycogen Storage Disease Type IX

Also known as liver glycogen phosphorylase kinase deficiency.

GSD IX is one of the least severe forms of GSD. In most individuals apart from liver enlargement there are few other problems. There is usually no tendency to low blood sugar, the liver becomes smaller with age and children grow normally.

Most cases of GSD Type IX are from X-linked inheritance and thus affect males only. However, GSD Type IX can be inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, in which case both male and female children of two carriers have a 25% chance of having the disease.
