LAL Deficiency (Lysosomal Acid Lipase Disease) & Wolman Disease patient support
Hi everyone, I found this Powerpoint presentation on my doctors' website. He has 53 patients with CESD out of 300 (Late on-set-LAL Deficiency). If you live in New York I advise anyone with CESD to go see him. I told him about this site and how I was going to refer my fellow members. He is doing seminars teaching other doctors about this disease and most importantly is looking for it. He is working with a doctor in Mount Sinai to do a special test (liver biopsy) that will determin if I or anyone will get Cirrhosis in the furture and a bunch of other stuff.
