The following website is an educational resource for people dealing with
lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs). There are more than 40 diseases
classified as LSDs, each caused by a problem with a particular enzyme
in the body. While individually each of these diseases are relatively rare,
grouped together they affect 1 in about every 7,700 babies born.
Symptoms vary widely across the different LSDs--some of which may cause relatively minor problems, while others
can be very serious. Medical management
options for the LSDs often cross several medical specialties.
Some LSDs have disease-specific treatment options to consider. Be sure to speak with your
doctor about the best medical care options for you or your loved ones.
