Management of the condition

Fabry disease is managed using a multidisciplinary approach including Enzyme Replacement Therapy (ERT) or chaperone therapy, symptomatic treatment and lifestyle modifications, which together can help slow disease progression and provide a better quality of life.1

Like diagnosis, disease management usually requires a team approach among medical specialties, since Fabry disease affects multiple organ systems.
