What we find too often is that when a patient has symptoms that a diagnosis has not been made for, mitochondrial disorders often get invoked as a diagnosis. We frequently see patients labeled with a mitochondrial disease diagnosis who in fact have something else, whether it be a genetic syndrome, or another medical issue like celiac or Lyme disease.
