Help and Hope for the Glut1 Deficiency Community


The Glut1 Deficiency Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization run by parents of Glut1 Deficiency patients.

We are grateful for the support we receive from families and friends from around the world as we work to increase awareness of and advocacy for Glut1 Deficiency, educate others, and support researchers as they work for better treatments and an ultimate cure.
