association for glycogen storage diseases UK

The AGSD-UK provides support and help for individuals and families affected by Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD). We put people in contact with others to reduce isolation, we provide information through this website, books, leaflets and newsletters, and we hold conferences and workshops. Find out more about us and what we do by exploring the menus above or using the site map.

Glycogen is a stored form of glucose, which is used as a fuel for energy. Glycogen Storage Disease occurs when there is an absence or deficiency of an enzyme needed to produce or break down glycogen. GSD primarily affects the liver and/or the muscles.
