The Scandinavian Association for Glycogen Storage Disease (SAGSD) provides support and help for individuals and families affected by hepatic (liver) types of Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD). We will help doctors, dietitians and patients establishing contact, providing information and holding conferences and meetings. The SAGSD has members from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland, both children and adults are members. So far we have 35 patients/families with all the liver types of GSD types in our association. Find out more about our association by exploring the menus above.


Glycogen is a stored form of glucose, which is used as a fuel for energy. Glycogen Storage Disease or glycogenosis occurs when there is an absence or deficiency of an enzyme needed to produce or break down glycogen in the body. GSD primarily affects the liver and/or muscles.
