Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI
If I have Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VI, what should my doctor know about managing the disease?
Your doctor should know that this is a progressive condition that affects multiple organ systems of the body and that there is currently one approved treatment, galsulfase. Your doctor should also know that mucopolysaccharidosis type VI is a genetic condition that is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. This information can help your doctor learn about how to best take care of you and who else in your family may need to be tested for mucopolysaccharidosis type VI.
