Abstract

Life expectancy in glycogen storage disease type 1 (GSD-1) has improved considerably. Its relative rarity implies that no metabolic centre has experience of large series of patients and therefore experience with long-term management and follow-up at each centre is limited. There is wide variation in methods of dietary and pharmacological treatment. Based on data from the European Study on Glycogen Storage Disease Type 1, discussions within this study group together with those at the International SHS Symposium 'Glycogen Storage Disease Type I and II: Recent Developments, Management and Outcome', Fulda, Germany (2000) and on data from the literature, a series of guidelines were drawn up.

CONCLUSION:

the following guidelines for the management of patients with glycogen storage disease type 1b are in addition to those general guidelines for glycogen storage disease type 1 and address specific problems related to neutropenia and neutrophil dysfunction.
