You’re not alone in managing FA. You can get an entire team of support

Friedreich’s ataxia (FA) is a complex disease. Managing it requires a team approach with you at the center

Your FA care team includes a group of healthcare professionals working together to give you the care you need. Each of these individuals focuses on specific areas of your care—from heart health to mobility.

Healthcare professionals who may be part of your care team

Orthopedist
Treats bones, joints, and soft tissue, as well as orthopedic issues, such as scoliosis.

Endocrinologist
Helps manage issues you may have with your endocrine system, such as impaired blood sugar tolerance or diabetes.

Neurologist
Deals with problems of your nervous system. Because FA is a disease of the nervous system, your neurologist plays a key role in your care.

Primary Care Physician
Your primary care physician is the doctor you see on a regular basis. He or she can learn about FA with you and remain a consistent part of your care team for years.

Cardiologist
Because people with FA often have heart problems, a cardiologist is a key member of your care team.
