Yais' stomach has been gradually getting bigger since 1 year ago, and he is often lethargic and faces difficulties waking up in the morning. Doctors' examination revealed that Yais suffers from a metabolic disease called glycogen storage disease. This condition causes the 3-year-old boy's stomach to keep increasing in size due to the over-sized and expanding liver. Initial medical checks also showed that Yais' blood sugar level tends to be low (Hypoglycemia) with blood lipids level that is high (Hypertriglyceridemia), which causes Yais' constant lethargy.
Glycogen storage disorder is a congenital metabolic syndrome marked by glycogen accumulation in abnormal quantity/type in the body tissues. This condition causes the body's inability to produce glucose in sufficient amounts and consequently the body isn't able to rely on glucose as an energy source. Subsequently, the condition gives rise to a variety of complications, including decreased blood sugar level, increasing liver size, growth abnormality, and muscle cramps. If these symptoms are not attended to, they could result in death.
Currently, Yais' parents has an income of Rp 3.000.000 per month as laborers. To add to their burden, Yais' older brother also suffers from the same condition. Yais needs to take a special medical nutrition, Glycosade, mixed with a special formula milk to maintain a stable blood sugar level. The milk costs Rp 13.500.000 for a 3 month consumption. Their family's income is not sufficient to cover the cost of the special milk that Yais needs.
