In brief: No cure yet

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.
