So sorry to hear of your daughter’s lifelong problems, so many seem to flare up in their teens. I’m curious of her consultants findings of Mitochondrial Depletion, what causes this, did they say? because I take it, this is actually a reduction in number per square mm or whatever, yes ? Did they offer any form of treatment, or is it just a case of ‘that’s your lot!’
I have Mitochondrial Dysfunction, (which manifests in overwhelming fatigue), problematic for me but a somewhat lesser problem than your daughter’s, I shouldn’t wonder. What type of physician carried out the muscle biopsy please?
