Prevention of hereditary diseases is always complicated. The earlier the diagnosis of phosphate diabetes is made, the more favorable the outcome. Early supportive therapy can help forget about it forever. If one of the parents has suffered a disease in childhood, genetic analysis should be done for the child immediately after birth. In case the pathology is found, the child is examined regularly by the endocrinologist and pediatrician and receives timely treatment.

The deformation in case of phosphate diabetes can be significant or weak. Sometimes orthopedists prescribe wearing a corset to correct the disease. It can alleviate the situation with a mild degree of pathology. In some cases, phosphate diabetes disfigures the legs making them bowed, their growth is significantly reduced and waddling gait develops, until it is impossible for a person to move independently. Then the operation is necessary with no doubt. Patients undergo osteotomy and Ilizarov device is installed. This device has long been used in orthopedics to correct deformities of the musculoskeletal system. The pathology of phosphate diabetes is one of them. At Ladisten Clinic, the procedure is carried out in a minimally invasive way, with the incisions just up to 1 cm in size. An improved Veklich device is used which has less weight, does not cause dangerous injuries and allows to make the rehabilitation process faster. With help of the operation, the patient is able to get new straight legs, the quality of life is improved and psychological discomfort disappears. The elimination of consequences in case of phosphate diabetes pathology takes only 3-4 months. And after that, the patient walks through life with healthy and straight legs!
The patient is in the clinic for 12 days, then goes through rehabilitation at home. In the future, after 3 months, another short visit to the clinic will be required to remove the devices.
