Glycogen storage disease
One of the most mysterious and devastating pediatric conditions, a child born with glycogen storage disease (GSD) cannot process glucose in normal fashion. A child with GSD could have a seizure, suffer developmental delays, go into a coma or even die if not treated properly. Dr. David Weinstein, director of the UF Glycogen Storage Disease Program, treats and tracks the largest group of GSD patients in the world. His work includes breakthrough research on GSD treatments that can prolong a patient’s good health and ultimately one day result in a cure.
