This comprehensive educational initiative is a physician need-oriented, interactive and virtual platform designed for healthcare professionals (HCPs) around the world who are committed to advancing their knowledge and leadership in rare lysosomal storage diseases.
Fabry Disease Overview:
An overview of Fabry Disease, including pathophysiology, disease presentation and progression, challenges in diagnosis, and testing and disease registry resources for providers.
Kidney Panel Testing One-Pager
This brochure provides information on chronic kidney disease (CKD) as a condition characterized by gradual loss of kidney function over time. Patients with Fabry disease can present with isolated CKD or with CKD in conjunction with additional signs and symptoms such as bradycardia, left ventricular hypertrophy, cardiac arrhythmias, heart failure, strokes, neuropathic and gastrointestinal pain, hearing loss, and angiokeratomas.
Diagnosing Fabry Disease:

The Fabry Registry, a program sponsored and administered by Sanofi, was created in 2001 to gather information to improve the understanding and evaluate the treatment of Fabry disease. It is the largest patient registry dedicated to Fabry disease.
Because Fabry disease is rare, it can be difficult to collect information about it and its impacts on different people. The Fabry Registry is a global, obeservational database for gathering this critical information. All people who have Fabry disease are eligible to participate, regardless of whether they are on treatment.
