Will my child with Alpha-mannosidosis be able to live independently?
Some people with Alpha-mannosidosis have medical problems that can prevent them from living independently. However, Alpha-mannosidosis is a variable disease and there may be some people who can live somewhat independently without help from others. Mental capacity based on the severity of disease is another factor that plays a big role in whether or not a person with Alpha-mannosidosis may be able to live on their own.
