Mitochondrial disease

Is there anyone suffering from mitochondrial diseases? My doctor just tested me for them, thinking I have MNGIE (Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy syndrome). I have progressive severe spasticity, spasming convulsions, drooping eyelids, eye pain, ulcerative colitis, twisting limbs, severe fatigue, and severe hypoglycemia that may be due to slow onset type 1 diabetes. Just looking for some insight.

Re: Mitochondrial disease

Thanks so much! I don't eat too high sugar meals any how because of the blood sugar issues. I'm just waiting it out until this become full blown T1 diabetes before I don't really have to diet control. Thanks for the heads up though, I'll definitely be aware of LA buildup. I'm going to check out that website too. Do you have mito?
