CHENNAI:The lack of awareness among doctors regarding Lysosomal Storage Disorder could lead to wrong diagnosis, said actor Karthi Shivakumar at the awareness meet by Lysosomal Storage Disorder Support Society (LSDSS) on Wednesday. Speaking at the meet, Karthi said that awareness and empathy are required at goverment-level, and new avenues should be opened for research. “We are looking to put forward a representation before the TN Chief Minister next month towards asking for inclusion of treatment of LSD diseases under the Chief Ministers comprehensive health insurance scheme besides the need for a speciality centre for treatment of LSD where informed medical practioners can help treat the children,” said the actor. The problem is that at present, no insurance company provides health cover for children with LSD as it is a pre existing condition, said Dr Suresh, director, Mediscan. “We have been making active representation to the government for the creation of a corpus fund for treatment of LSD children and research/awarEness programmes for doctors,” said Manjit Singh, president, LSDSS.
