Comparison of the Effect of a Novel Starch (Glycosade) Versus Gastrostomy Tube-Dextrose Infusion on Overnight Euglycaemia Control in Children With Glycogen Storage Disease Type I: Open Label Demonstration Trial

Brief Summary

      The objective of this demonstration project is to compare a novel long-acting starch,
      Glycosade, a hydrothermally processed high amylopectin maize starch, versus gastrostomy
      tube-dextrose infusion in maintaining euglycaemia overnight in children with GSD-I. Glycosade
      has been reported to increase the duration of euglycaemia. Its slow release and longer
      periods of normal blood sugar achieved would preclude the need for the overnight dextrose
      infusion and eliminate the need for the surgical insertion of a gastrostomy tube for this
      purpose. Glycosade also reportedly causes fewer gastrointestinal side effects, thus
      potentially improving compliance to therapy. The investigators intend to evaluate Glycosade
      in our patients and determine its efficacy on glucose control, on the length of normoglycemia
      achieved and to determine if there are reduced side effects in our patients with GSD-I. This
      will be accomplished by an open label study of Glycosade in GSD-I patients who consent to the
      protocol.
