Gaucher patients may have higher-than-normal metabolism. Patients with hepatosplenomegaly can frequently have early satiety. Their nutritional needs may not be met. The enlarged organs leave little room in the body cavity for a full stomach, so patients often report a sensation of feeling full, even after having only a few bites of food. A consult with a dietician may be recommended.

Gaucher Cells

Gaucher cells accumulate and displace healthy normal cells in bone marrow and organs such as the liver and spleen. This accumulation causes a host of signs, including skeletal deterioration, anemia, and organ dysfunction.
