About Glycogen Storage Disease Type 1a

Glycogen Storage Disease Ia, also known as glycogen storage disease type i, is related to fanconi-bickel syndrome and glycogen storage disease v, and has symptoms including intermittent diarrhea An important gene associated with Glycogen Storage Disease Ia is G6PC1 (Glucose-6-Phosphatase Catalytic Subunit 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Metabolism and Diseases of glycosylation. The drugs Prednisolone phosphate and Prednisolone acetate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include liver, kidney and skin, and related phenotypes are hepatomegaly and hyperuricemia

Major Symptoms of Glycogen Storage Disease Type 1a

Glycogen storage disease type 1a (GSD1a) is a hereditary liver disease. The main symptoms include:
