In brief: Possibly

Mitochondrial disorders can have varying symptoms.
Ptosis, hypotonia and muscle issues are a common finding. Autism or cognitive impairment is often also associated with certain mitochondrial disorders. Prealbumin may relate to altered metabolism due to the mitochondrial disorder. Suggest discussing more formal genetic testing with a geneticist.
