How and why Fabry can worsen
The one constant is change, and Fabry is no exception. Fabry is progressive, and you may feel its effects or you may not. It can change slowly or quickly, causing damage at different rates.
Your Fabry might not always be the same as it is now. Left untreated, Fabry can progress as fatty substances continue to build up in cells, which can cause damage to one or more organs and could lead to new symptoms.
