Thank you for expressing an interest to find out further information about Type 1 Gaucher disease

As a healthcare professional working in Haematology, you can play a key role in the diagnosis of Gaucher Disease. Due to the lack of specificity of symptoms, the diagnosis of Gaucher Disease is often delayed. A retrospective review of a single cohort of 86 patients with Type 1 Gaucher disease, found the median time period from onset of symptoms to diagnosis to be two years, but it can be much longer. About one fifth of patients experienced a delay in diagnosis of five or more years.1
Have you diagnosed a Gaucher Patient yet?

Look for commonly associated signs of type 1 Gaucher disease. In a cohort of 86 patients with Type 1 Gaucher disease at a UK centre, a retrospective case notes review found 45 patients had a more complete clinical and laboratory assessment documented at time of initial presentation. From these 45 patients1.
