There are no cures for lipid storage disorders. Because the diseases are ingrained into a person's genes, there is no way to remove the cause of the disease from their body. Because of this, treatments for lipid storage disorders attempt to counteract the effects of faulty genes and enzyme deficiencies, and to manage the symptoms of the disorder.
The first step to preventing and curing lipid storage disorders is identifying the genes responsible for the particular diseases. Doctors are currently researching to develop treatments, preventatives, and cures based on the faulty genes responsible for some of these diseases.
