In general, no specific treatment exists for glycogen storage diseases (GSDs)/glycogenosis type VII. However, certain treatments can help. They include,
- Diet therapy: In some cases, diet therapy may be helpful. Meticulous adherence to a dietary regimen may reduce the liver size, prevent hypoglycemia, reduce symptoms, and allow growth and development in patients with GSDs.
- Heavy exercise should be avoided: Avoid rigorous workouts to prevent muscle pain and cramps.
- Avoid carbohydrates: Eating simple sugars (carbohydrates) should also be avoided because this can make the exercise intolerance worse.
- Protein intake: Eating high amounts of protein during exercise may prevent symptoms.
- Genetic counseling: It is recommended for individuals with GSD7 and their families.
