It may affects humans as well as other mammals (especially dogs). In humans it is the least common type of glycogen storage disease.
Presentation The disease presents with exercise-induced muscle cramps and weakness (sometimes rhabdomyolysis), as well as with haemolytic anaemia causing dark urine a few hours later.
