Had bloods for lyme,ANCA,anti DNA antibodies, anti mitochondrial all negative. if autoimmune started 7 years ago tho wouldn't blood repair to normal?

No

Lyme_disease
Autoantibodies rarely become negative if they were positive. It may rarely happen if the disease is in complete remission. However, that almost never happens.

What is mitochondrial disorder?

Energy loss

Gene
Mitochondria are the "engines"of each cell throughout the body.Loss of energy changes normal functions and the symptoms are many. Mitochondria have their own genes and they are inherited from the mother alone

What are mitochondrial diseases?

Energy failure

Mitochondria are the "engines" of the cell. They produce the energy that enables each cell to perform its designated function. Loss of enough cellular energy produces loss of function expressed as symptoms.

Energy failure

Mitochondrial diseases result from dysfunctional mitochondria (powerhouses of cells). When they don’t function, the body has energy (ATP) deficiency. Thus, symptoms often come from organs with high energy need e.g. brain (seizures, migraines), heart (weak heart muscle) liver, muscles, hormone system, etc. There is no cure yet for mitochondrial diseases but lot of active research to find a cure.

What is (or are) a mitochondrial disease?

Definition of Mito.

Mitochondria are specific organelles within our cells. They are essentially the energy-producing factories of the cells; they produce (among other things) a molecule called ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the energy currency of the body. There are a few mitochondrial diseases; these diseases specifically affect this very important structure within our cells.

What are symptoms of mitochondrial myopathy?

Many symptoms

Chest-heart
The MM are a group of disorders due to dysfunction of the mitochondria, which are the energy producing parts of the cell. Nerve and muscle cells need a great deal of energy and so are most affected. Symptoms depend on which enzymes / proteins are dysfunctional, but muscle, brain, heart and eye function can be affected. See: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/mitochondrial_myopathy for more info.

Dr. Rowan Paul answered:

How do doctors diagnose mitochondrial disease?

Big work up

Urine
All suspected patients get blood and urine tests. Then to see how widespread the disease is, EKG, Echocardiogram, brain MRI, Audiology and eye exams are next. Patients with neurologic symptoms need spinal fluid tests, and people with developmental delays get neurogenetic testing and counseling. For more info and to find docs that take care of these diseases, see umdf.org. Good luck.

There is no curative treatment yet available for mitochondrial disorders. However, a lot of research is being done in this area. In the meantime, the treatment includes various supplements (vitamins and antioxidants) that may help some patients, maintaining healthy lifestyle, and avoiding triggers that may make disease worse such as certain medications that affect mitochondrial function.

Dr. Robert Kent answered:

Could you explain what is mitochondrial myopathy?

Disease where

Strength_training
the mitochondria in muscles are not functioning properly and cause muscle weakness or atrophy of the muscle. The mitochondria is the "powerhouse" of the cell. When they do not function correctly, the cells loose power and either are not efficient or cause cell death. Theres many different causes of this type of myopathy. See http://mda.org/disease/mitochondrial-myopathies Hope that helps!
