Visit www.fabrycommunity.com to learn more about Fabry disease. It was once thought that females who inherited Fabry disease were just carriers, we now know this isn’t true — females are affected by the disease and can experience life-threating symptoms. Females and family members affected by Fabry disease share their own inspiring, personal stories about living with this rare genetic disorder. Nephrologist Dr. David Warnock also provides commentary about how Fabry disease can impact both women and girls. Fabry disease is a multisystemic inherited disorder marked by the progressive cellular accumulation of globotriaosylceramide (GL-3). GL-3 build-up leads to potentially life-threatening symptoms of the kidney, heart and brain.
