This is when mitochondria do not work as well as they should due to another disease or condition. Many conditions can lead to secondary dysfunction. has been identified as an important factor in many diseases and conditions beyond primary Related to the mitochondria. disease, including autism, ALS, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes. Exposure to toxins via medication, lifestyle, and the environment may lead to mitochondrial dysfunction, cell damage and organ dysfunction. Join us this month with Dr. Kendall Wallace, Ph.D., DABT, ATS to learn more about mitochondrial disorders which may be acquired by or aggravated by toxins. Dr. Wallace’ primary area of research is the mechanisms of involvement of mitochondria in the origination of metabolic diseases which may be caused by toxicity.
- Non-genetic, lifestyle or exposure-related mitochondrial diseases
- Multiple targets for exposure-related mitochondrial disease.
- Environmentally acquired mitochondrial disease.
