European Glut1 Deficiency Organization

About “Glut1 Deficiency”?

Glucose Transporter Type 1 Deficiency Syndrome is a genetic disorder that impairs brain metabolism. Glucose is not transported properly into the brain, which leaves it starving for the metabolic fuel it needs to grow, develop, and function the way it should.

Currently, the only known treatment for this condition is a ketogenic diet which is high in fat and low in carbohydrates. The ketones generated by following this diet can be used as an alternative source of fuel for the brain. This improves the symptoms and development for many patients, but is not always easy to implement and stick to.
