Living Well With Mitochondrial Disease – A Handbook for Patients, Parents and Families

This book helps make sense of mitochondrial disease (Mito), an overwhelming and complex group of diagnoses that has grown exponentially in recent years. This guide is the first book about Mito written for patients and their families and helps readers understand how the mitochondria work (they are the powerhouse of the cell, providing energy for the entire body), how people with mitochondrial defects are diagnosed and treated, and how to live well when you, your child, or someone you love is struggling with disabling symptoms. Written by a parent who is also a nurse and patient advocate.
