Priority 7 from the Liver Glycogen Storage Disease (International) PSP

UNCERTAINTY: What is the role for new methods for monitoring metabolic control (like noninvasive continuous glucose and lactate measurements, new biomarkers) for patients with liver Glycogen Storage Disease?  (JLA PSP Priority 7)
Overall ranking 7
JLA question ID 0090/7
Explanatory note

Metabolic control in patients with liver GSD is poorly defined and is based on markers that are indirectly linked to the metabolic blockade and are invasive to measure. The focus of this research question is to more closely monitor metabolic control with new technologies.
