Fabry disease


Where can I find a treatment center for Fabry disease?

Fabry disease and Lysosomal Storage Disease Centers (LSDCs) are genetic centers that specialize in the treatment of patients with Fabry disease. Most centers have a medical geneticist, genetic counselor, kidney doctor (nephrologist), heart doctor (cardiologist), and nurse who work as a team to answer your questions, discuss testing, identify your at-risk family members, and develop a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan for you. The Fabry specialist will work with your current doctors to organize the treatment, tests, and specialists you need. There is a Fabry clinic finder at the National Fabry Disease Foundation website.

The Fabry International Network is a patient advocacy group that can help identify Fabry specialist centers to patients living outside the United States.
