Mitochiondrial disease is a group of disorder caused by dysfunctional mitochondria. Mytochondria are responsible for generation of 90% of energy required by the body to sustain life and growth.These are also known as the power house of the cell.They contain tiny packages of enzymes that converts nutrients into energy. This disease is caused by mutations in mitochondrial DNA and its failure in function may ultimately lead to cell death.
Symptoms include loss of motor control, muscle weakness and pain,swallowing difficulties,liver disease,diabetes,cardiac disease,gastro-intestinal disorders and developmental delay.Ecamples on mitochondrial diseases include dementia,Diabetes mellitus and deafness,Leigh syndrome,neuropathy,Myoclonic epilepsy,strke-like symptoms,mtDNA deletion.
