Please pray for my son with mitochondrial disease


#1

Please pray for my son Jack (8) who has lived with mitochondrial disease since he was a baby. Jack is a spiritual, intelligent, kind, loving young man who wants nothing more than to be able to run with his friends and not be in pain. Jack prays every night and asks God to help heel him. He appreciates the gift of God and realizes the power God has…but at the same time, he’s only 8 and wants to just be a normal kid. He is thankful to be able to function as he does. Please keep him in your prayers.

Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

•Certain vitamin and enzyme therapies, along with occupational and physical therapy, might be helpful for some patients.
Vitamins and supplements prescribed might include:

•Coenzyme Q10
•B complex vitamins: thiamine (B 1), riboflavin (B 2), niacin (B 3), B 6, folate, B 12, biotin, pantothenic acid
•Vitamin E, lipoic acid, selenium, and other antioxidants
•L-carnitine (Carnitor ®)
•Intercurrent illness supplement: vitamin C, biotin
Other treatments that might be prescribed include:

•Diet therapy, as prescribed by your doctor along with a registered dietitian, might be recommended.
•Antioxidant treatments as protective substances are currently being investigated as another potential treatment method.
Important: Specific treatments should always be guided by a metabolic specialist. Patients should not take any of these supplements or try any of the treatments unless prescribed by a doctor. Taking inappropriate supplements or treatments might lead to delays or failure in establishing an accurate diagnosis.

What is the prognosis or outlook?
Once a patient is diagnosed with a specific mitochondrial disease, the patient’s medical problems have already been identified or can be identified with proper testing so treatment can be initiated to relieve symptoms and delay the progression of the disease.

There is no way to predict the course of mitochondrial diseases. They might progress quickly or slowly, even over decades. The disease might also appear stable for years.

For parents considering having other children, genetic counseling is available. Although complex, prenatal testing is only available for a few types of mitochondrial disorders. Please discuss your concerns with your doctor.
