Simplifying Therapy for Fabry Disease

Diplomat Specialty Infusion Group combines clinical expertise with personal care.

Fabry disease is an inherited condition. It’s caused when an enzyme called alpha-galactosidase A (alpha-gal A) either doesn’t work or is missing. Without this enzyme, the body can’t break down a certain type of fat (or “lipid”) called globotriaosylceramide (GL-3 or GB-3). This results in a buildup of GL-3 in the body’s cells.

Fabry disease can affect both males and females. Females might have a wide range of symptoms or no symptoms at all. In some cases, women might be misdiagnosed with lupus or another condition. An estimated one in 40,000 people have Fabry disease.
