Understanding Fabry disease - information for parents and families

Updated: Jan 30

This booklet is produced by the Society for Mucopolysaccharide Diseases (MPS Society) and is designed to help those affected by Fabry disease – both patients and their families – understand its causes and effects. While there is currently no cure for individuals affected by Fabry disease, this booklet explores how best to understand and manage the disease. It draws on the experiences of patients, carers, families and medical professionals as well as medical literature.
