How do I manage my lipid storage disorder on a daily basis?

The most common way of managing lipid storage disorders is by treating the symptoms and side effects. Although there are few treatments for some types, most lipid storage disorders have no cures or treatments. Doctors generally focus on managing symptoms like pain, enlargement of organs, dementia, seizures, and other common side effects.

Occasionally, more intense treatments like transplants and transfusions can help manage a disease for a limited period of time when combined with daily medication and symptom management.
