Type 1 Glycogen Storage Disease In Children
Maintenance of close: to normal/ normal blood glucose & treatment of other metabolic problems can improve growth & extend lifespan in kids with GSD Types 1a & 1b. Some now live healthier lives into adulthood. GCSF is a medication to increase the number of white blood cells. Managing diet, dental, bone density, kidney, liver, etc.problems is key. See http://www.agsdus.org/html/typeigsd.html for infirmation & resources. ...Read more
Von Gierke Disease: Molecular genetic testing for mutations of the G6PC gene on chromosome 17q21 is available. If 1 parent is a carrier, the other parent needs testing. If both are carriers, each fetus. has a 25% chance of inheriting the mutant gene from both parents, thus having VGD. Prenatal molecular genetic testing of amniotic fluid is also available. Call 1300-88-1362 or see http://m.dna-laboratories.com. ...Read more
Sure: There are excellent diets designed for all different types of storage disorders. However, very few people are well versed in what these diets consist of. Find a dietician associated with a genetics center or with a pediatric hospital that deals with these disorders frequently, like Cleveland Clinic, Childrens Hospital of Philidelphia, Mayo, Waisman Center to name a few. ...Read more
Google: There is a lot of info on line as well as support groups. ...Read more
Long build up: I'm not a geneticist; and, there are good references on this subject easily available on the net. However, a quick answer is long build-up. The disease is viewed as constitutional (born-in) and not a later development of a "sudden mutation". If you are really interested, do your homework on the subject by looking at NIH and other sites. ...Read more
My glycogen level in blood has come low. Its 2.0. All my medical test are ok except this one. Any serious issue?

See doctor: It is unlikely that your symptoms are caused by low glycogen store. Myopathy can cause exercise intolerance but what is the cause for it? Have you consulted a rheumatologist or neurologist yet? If not, consider seeing one. Do note that there are other potential causes for exercise intolerance which need be considered. ...Read more
Can anyone help? To explain why a 25yr old 8yr endurance athlete lost endurance or glycogen storage adaptation after ssri or corticosteroid overdose?
By glycogen storage: I presume that you packed in a lot of glucose under the impression that it would form glycogen. Well, that is the truth but it is a natural process from sugar taken as it is served by mother nature in fruit etc. If you take sugar on its own it actually acts as a drug and will also induce deficiency of vitamin b 1 that might be the cause of your loss of endurance. ...Read more
Im a sprinter, and i would like to increase my glycogen storage in muscles with no carb method for 5 days and then loading of carbohydrates. Risks?
Difficult: It would be very difficult to increase your glycogen storage with no carb. Why then no carb then have a heavy loading? It makes little sense. ...Read more
Released: Glycogen is complex carbohydrate storage that is broken down in your body and released as 'simple carbohydrates' when your exersise becomes more intense and longer-lasting(usually more than an hour depending on your aerobic fitness).When glycogen stores are "used up"about the 21st or 22nd mile in a marathon u have"hit the wall"...A most umcomfortable feeling! ...Read more
Train: Your body always searches for glycogen first for energy. It is the fastest processed and most available energy source. After glycogen stores are depleted, fat is used as an energy source. Bu this usually takes 45 minutes of sustained activity at a mild to moderate level of intensity. ...Read more
Be good 2your liver: Insulin causes skeletal muscle and fat cells to absorb blood glucose. This glucose often comes from the liver after glycogenolysis. This is the breakdown of glycogens, which are the sugars your liver stores in long chains to use later. the release of blood sugar from these glycogen chains is done via the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase. ...Read more
I've been dealing with SIBO and HNPP like symptoms since I was 20. Started taking glycogen supp. for exercise and it lessened my paresthesia symptoms?
Find good holist: Fad diagnoses like "SIBO" do people a disservice -- most of the medical community doubts that they are prevalent as their proponents claim, and have you noticed that nobody ever gets better? Hereditary Neuropathy with pressure palsies is an easy diagnosis that any neurologist can make and manage, or refute. You need an ethical, evidence-based, holistically-savvy physician. Best wishes. ...Read more
