Managing Gaucher Disease

Traveling

Wondering whether you can handle traveling and other schedule changes with Gaucher disease?

As you know, your Gaucher disease does not go on holiday. Missing a treatment can cause symptoms to return and result in lasting damage to your body.

Yet if you need to travel for your job or want to take a family vacation, Gaucher disease does not need to stop you. If you are not away for more than a few weeks, schedule your treatments before and after you go away. If you need treatment while you are away, talk with your doctor about receiving your treatment where you are going. There are centres all over the world where you can receive Gaucher treatments. It can take time to make treatment arrangements, however, be sure to plan ahead.
