Doug Lynch is 41 years old and he was diagnosed when he was 37. He had all the symptoms related to the disease during his life.
He lives in New Zeland and he says he is lucky as he does not have to work “The NZ government gives me a nice handicap benefit to live off” says Doug.
He has a family and he says his 2 boys give him a reason to keep going in life. His hobby is to paint. He paints using 1 colour and lots of greys because of his colourblindness
He also has a message for all Wolfram syndrome patients:
“WS is a horrible thing, but we must keep going. Try to find something you like and are good at. Don’t let WS hold you back”

New video on my youtube channel “Wolfram Inside”. In this series “Traveling with Wolfram”, I show what it’s like to get out of my routine and know a new place with a different culture. My first trip alone was to Mexico, watch and learn about travel with Wolfram!
I am a Wolfram syndrome patient and that is why I need to be very careful with my health and doing medical appoitments is very important to me.
Thanks to my parents dedication I have the opportunity to have medical appoitments in United States.
Last May 17th, with my mom and sweet Renata Curtin, I had the pleasure to know a place called “Center for Advanced Medicine” located in St. Louis, Missouiri.
At this place, I had many medical appointments with ophtalmologist, neurologist and endocrinlogist accompanied by the Washington University, researcher Prof. Fumihiko Urano.
All of us are wishing that Dr.Fumi’s study and others studies dedicated to this disease can be a way to hope for WS patients.
Leonardo Sabino is 29 years old and was officially diagnosed with Wolfram syndrome 4 years ago.
Tragically, the pacient says he developed blindness in a short time when he was just 18 years old. Leo also suffers with osteoporosis, severe hearing loss, bladder issues and diabetes mellitus.
Even having a lot of symptoms, you will not find a more charismatic patient than Leo. “Every day when I wake up I receive a voice message from Leo wishing me a nice day and asking me how the westher is like in Porto Alegre. He is always funny!” , says Rafaela Ungaretti.
The patient’s willpower is too big. He is currently taking a braille computer technical course and tactile pounds course with a deaf, blind and mute teacher. He also took an archeological technical course and he wants to apply to university this year.
The WolframInside is very proud of him!
