I'm back with a short post. This one is about Glycogen storage diseases which, again, we all hate to remember :'D Hope you like it.
So Remember :
Very Pompously CAMe Her Tears.
1. Very = Von Gierke's
2. Pompously = Pompe's
3. C = Cori's / Forbe's
4. A = Anderson
5. M = McArdle's
6. Her = Her's (we'll at least Remember this one :'D)
7. Tears = Tarui's
So that's that.
Now how do we remember which is Muscular and which is hepatic ?
The Muscular get kissed under the Mistle Toe.
So the ones involving the Muscles are :
Mistle = McArdle
Toe = Tarui's.
Also remember :
Pompeii the city was a wh*re. So it went everywhere and hence Pompe's is both Muscular and Hepatic.
That's all for now. It may seem like a lot of crap to simply memorize these Glycogenosis but you'll realise they form an excellent aid for memory :D and are super important whether you want to do USMLE or Indian PG.
So c'mon ! Burn those Glycogens in your liver and get some Glucose into your head ;)
