The treatment of Fabry disease with D+galactose

This is not a medical recommendation!

We would also prefer the treatment with a Fabry-specific therapy by physicians!

Due to the distress created by the discontinuation of therapy by Fabry specialists in some Fabry patients with GVUS, some patients self-treat with D+galactose.
