Tracking your symptoms

Fabry disease can be monitored through a variety of laboratory tests and assessments.1 It is important to remain aware that clinical vigilance and regular monitoring are essential, as an absence of symptoms at baseline or at follow-up assessment does not preclude subsequent development of organ complications.2 

If your symptoms change or if they begin to occur more often or more severely, you should share this with your doctor. 

How the members of your care team can help you

Treatment and follow-up assessments to evaluate treatment responses should ideally be supervised by a physician experienced in the management of patients with Fabry disease, with input from sub-specialists who also have Fabry disease experience.2 This multidisciplinary clinical team may include a neurologist, nephrologist, cardiologist, medical geneticist, genetic counselor, psychologist, and nurse.

It’s important to remember that your care team is there to help you so you can always ask as many questions as you need to.
