Congenital Disorder of Glycosylation Type 1T



  • The infantile form is fatal in infancy and presents with hypotonia and a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (CARDIOMYOPATHY, HYPERTROPHIC). The childhood form usually presents in the second year of life with proximal weakness and respiratory symptoms.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Investigators studied oral and intravenous administration of galac-tose 0.6 g/kg in eight subjects that showed peak serum galactose levelsof approximately 24 mg/dl after oral administration and 58 mg/dl afterintravenous administration [21].[docslide.net]

Calcium Increased
  • Thus, not only does the increased intracellular calcium increase the rate of muscle contraction it increases glycogenolysis which provides the muscle cell with the glucose it needs to oxidize to satisfy the increased ATP it needs for contraction.[themedicalbiochemistrypage.org]

  • Liver transplantation has been performed and may be an effective treatment.[ommbid.mhmedical.com]
  • It will be interesting to see how the findings from Lee et al. will lead to better prognoses and treatments for PGM1 deficiency. In the meantime, Tegtmeyer et al. 5 have already tested out a treatment for the disease.[sulab.org]
  • Asinmost glycogenoses, frequent feeding and complex carbohydrate ther-apy are beneficiary in the treatment of liver disease andhypoglycemia inPGM1-CDG.[docslide.net]


  • Prognosis is good; adult patients have normal stature and minimal hepatomegaly.[ommbid.mhmedical.com]
  • Identification of a pathogenic variant may assist with prognosis, clinical management, familial screening, and genetic counseling.[mayomedicallaboratories.com]

  • A high-protein diet may also be effective in preventing hypoglycemia as gluconeogenesis is intact in these patients. Currently, there is no effective treatment for the progressive myopathy or cardiomyopathy.[ommbid.mhmedical.com]
  • Just as cells reciprocally regulate glycolysis and gluconeogenesis to prevent a futile cycle, so too do cells use reciprocal schemes to regulate glycogen breakdown and synthesis.[oregonstate.edu]
  • Treatment for GSDs, in the form of frequent carbohydrate dosing is available for some of the GSDs and functions to prevent the use of the endogenous glycogen catabolic pathway.[invitae.com]
