The LPL Deficiency Association is a patient organization under formation for those living with lipoprotein lipase deficiency (LPLD) in the United States. It aims to provide connection, support, education and information to patients, caregivers, researchers and other stakeholders interested in or impacted by LPLD.
The National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), a 501(c)(3) patient advocacy organization, is supporting the development of this organization and seeking participation from patients and caregivers. To learn more about NORD visit www.rarediseases.org
Are you or someone you know living with lipoprotein lipase deficiency (LPLD)?
