Fabry disease

I discovered a new cause of kidney problems today: Fabry disease, a genetic disorder leading to a toxic build up of GL-3 (whatever that is) in the blood.

A lot my symptoms fit (with some probably significant exceptions) but apparently there's no cure anyway so even a diagnosis of this as the cause wouldn't help me.

  1. There may not be a cure for it yet. However there is a treatment for Fabry's. It's called enzyme replacement theropy. The enzyme that is missing in Fabry patients gets infused into the body. It slows the progression of the disease down. And reduses the symptoms. If you want to learn more about Fabry and treatment for Fabry then you should go to and request some information.
