Fabry dis­ease is a rare ge­netic con­di­tion. Com­mon symp­toms in­clude episodes of pain, gas­troin­testi­nal prob­lems, re­duced sweat­ing, dark red skin spots and hear­ing loss. There’s also a risk of se­ri­ous com­pli­ca­tions such as kid­ney fail­ure, heart at­tacks and strokes. Though in­cur­able, it can be treated.
