The invisible disease that's killing our son - CNN.com

 

Mitochondria are responsible for creating more than 90% of the energy needed by the body to sustain life and support growth. When they fail, less and less energy is generated within the cell. Cell injury and even cell death follow.

If this process is repeated throughout the body, whole systems begin to fail, and that person's life is severely compromised. The disease primarily affects children, but adult onset is becoming more common.

We were told that diseases of the mitochondria appear to primarily damage cells of the brain, heart, liver, skeletal muscles, kidney and the endocrine and respiratory systems. (Excuse me, but what's left?)

Symptoms may include loss of motor control, muscle weakness and pain, gastrointestinal disorders and swallowing difficulties, poor growth, cardiac disease, liver disease, diabetes, respiratory complications, seizures, visual or hearing problems, lactic acidosis, developmental delays and susceptibility to infection.

Mitochondrial dysfunction is one of the symptoms of CFS.

HIV-NEGATIVE AIDS? said...

“A medical cover-up? GASP! Surely neither the government nor our trusted doctors and pharmaceutical companies would never cover-up the truth regarding a contagious disease - right? Wrong. Many believe that HIV-Negative AIDS cases falsely reported and treated as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome cases may be one of the biggest cover-ups we have seen. Dr. Lorraine Day will share her thoughts on this interesting topic.
