What should you do when you or your child is sick?
Being sick, even with a cold or a simple virus, is tough for most children and adult Mito patients. Many people with mitochondrial disease are “wiped out” when ill, and can take much longer to recover. Join us Friday December 7th, 2012 for an exciting teleconference with Dr. Mark Korson as we discuss what to do when a Mito patient is sick at home:
- What signs and symptoms are cause for concern and require urgent medical support?
- When should you call your doctor? What can your primary care doctor do if your specialist is not local?
- What degree of and types of sickness can be managed at home? How do you know?
- Important steps to take if you, your child or a family member is admitted to the hospital
