We interviewed Suzanne Goh MD about mitochondrial dysfunction, which is common in children with seizures and neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism.
The best way to think of mitochondrial dysfunction is like thinking about economics: supply and demand.
People with mitochondrial dysfunctions can’t supply enough energy to meet their bodies’ demands.
Seemingly typical things to most people can cause an energy drain in those with mitochondrial dysfunction.
Breakthroughs in neurological research have shown the essential role of mitochondria to healthy brain function and development.
Key nutrients to target mitochondrial function can have a positive impact on language, communication, and social ability – from infancy to adulthood.
