One of the front-line treatment approaches to a mitochondrial disease is to use a combination, unique to each patient based on symptoms and diagnosis, of vitamins and supplements such as Coenzyme Q10, B-vitamins, L-Carnitine, Creatine, and Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Compounding pharmacists Saad Dinno and Ted Toufas from Acton Pharmacy will be discussing the ingredients which make up the mysterious “Mito Cocktail.”
Some talking points will include:
- What is a compounding pharmacist?
- How do ingredients in the Mito Cocktail differ from a compounding pharmacist than an over-the-counter source?
- What are the side effects of the vitamins & supplements used to support adults and children with mitochondrial disease?
- Which vitamins and supplements are most commonly included in a treatment regimen?
