XLH: Mystery behind the Rare Disease
XLH is often perceived as a child’s disease, but this rare debilitating bone disease is a genetic disease that continues to progress with age. We’ll meet a family that has been diagnosed with X-linked Hypophosphatemia and is now living with the reality of the disease.
