Because GK provides the major entryway of glycerol metabolism, loss of enzyme activity leads to hyperglycerolemia and hyperglyceroluria (2, 3).
These vary from asymptomatic hyperglycerolemia to life-threatening metabolic crises, including vomiting, ketoacidosis, and central nervous system decompensation, presumably attributable to hypoglycemia (2, 3, 6-8).
