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. We represent all the liver types of GSD in our association. 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.


The 5th SAGSD conference in Ängelholm, Sweden

May 14-15 2022


The past weekend a very successful conference took place in Ängelholm, Sweden. At the historic hotel Klitterhus, 59 persons were present, 14 families with children or adults with one of the liver types of GSD and 7 Swedish metabolic and hepatologic doctors and 4 dietitians. Several workshops and interactions between the families and health care professionals were held. As a new initiative the conference was also broadcasted live via Zoom, for this biannual conference with another 62 people joined and one could listen to world renowned experts on GSD holding presentations. With the in total 121 people, in-person and virtual, this was the biggest conference ever held in Scandinavia on Glycogen Storage Disease. The feedback from the Scandinavian health care professionals, the invited speakers and industry has only been positive. As and extra surprise the supercar company Koenigsegg also accepted to stop by and show the children and adults one of their spectacular cars. We are very grateful for all the support from families, health care professionals and the sponsors, all are valued. Without your conferences likes these cannot be possible!


Look forward to the next conference in two year! We hope that researcher and industry continue to develop new treatment for GSD and we still hope for an actual cure some day!
