McArdle Sydnrome

McArdle syndrome is a autosomal recessive genetic disorder that affects an individual's ability to break down glucose (Haldeman-Englert, 2014). The gene that controls glycogen phosphorylase, an enzyme that breaks down glucose, mutates and can no longer function properly (Tangient LLC, n.d.).

Any one person who is diagnosed with McArdle Syndrome is able to live a normal life as long as they manage their physical activity(Haldeman-Englert, 2014).

A person may only get McArdle Syndrome if both parents carry the gene(Haldeman-Englert, 2014).

McArdle Syndrome is present at birth due to genes and in many cases, the person is not diagnosed until their 20's or 30's(Haldeman-Englert, 2014).

McArdle Syndrome may cause fatigue in the muscles along with poor stamina, muscle pain, stiffness, weakness, and cramps(Haldeman-Englert, 2014). It also affects the liver (Haldeman-Englert, 2014).

McArdle Syndrome

Although there is no specific cure for McArdle Syndrome, there are ways to manage it. A dietary plan may help along with managing your physical exercise but should avoid intense exercise (Haldeman-Englert, 2014). One celebrity named Greg Whyte, an endurance trainer, wrote an article based on his McArdle Syndrome research (AGSD, n.d.).
