Mitochondrial Diseases overview

Mitochondrial diseases are a group of genetic conditions that affect how mitochondria function in your body. Mitochondria are the organelles that produce energy for the cell and are found in every cell of the human body except red blood cells. They convert the energy of food molecules into the ATP that powers most cell functions. Mitochondrial diseases can affect almost any part of your body, including the brain, nerves, muscles, kidneys, heart, liver, eyes, ears and pancreas. Mitochondrial diseases can emerge at any age and are enormously diverse in their clinical and molecular features. Some of the most common types of mitochondrial diseases are MELAS syndrome, LHON, Leigh syndrome, KSS, and MERRF. Mitochondrial diseases are diagnosed by a combination of clinical symptoms, biochemical tests, genetic tests and muscle biopsies. There are no cures for mitochondrial diseases, but treatment can help manage the symptoms and prevent complications.
