6 months later.
The original pathology report came back normal.
The enzyme tests had to be sent to New York.
The Dr. finally called back today with the results.
When you have to wait for the Dr. to call...it's never a good thing.
She had one enzyme come back low in the muscle test: Succinate Cytochrome Reductase.
It's part of the respiratory chain.
He had to spell it for me.
They recommend further testing. A Coenzyme q10 analysis. It requires more tissue.
We are starting her on 50mg of coenzyme q10 immediately.
He's sending us back to the Metabolic Genetecist we saw a year ago when her Endocrine System went haywire and we heard of Mitochondrial Disease for the first time.
She will tell us if we should move forward with the "further testing." And what else we should add to her multivitamin cocktail.
Guess what else helps kids with Mito? The Ketogenic Diet.
The secret to instant optimism: Ever do this?
