The Glycogen Storage Diseases are a group of inherited disorders of glycogen synthesis or degradation. Glycogen is the storage form of carboyhydrates, and it serves as the primary fuel for the body. Glycogen is principally stored in the liver, kidneys, and muscles, and the clinical characteristics of the disease depend on the issues which are involved. Hypoglycemia is the main manifestation of the liver forms of GSD, while muscles pain and weakness are the predominant symptoms in the muscle forms (Weinstein, Dr. David A., 2014).
