Currently 15 designated Glycogen Storage Diseases (GSD) have been characterized. Some of these GSDs reflect multiple subtypes as in the case of GSD1 where there are at least three distinct genes whose defects result in symptoms highly similar to classic von Gierke disease. Only those diseases for which descriptive pages are currently available are presented here.

GSD1: von Gierke disease

GSD2: Pompe disease

GSD3: Cori disease or Forbes disease

GSD4: Andersen disease

GSD5: McArdle disease
