    Hi Dr. Kruse,
    My three year old son has been on high dose corticosteroids since his diagnosis a few months ago, of immune dysfunction of the kidneys causing heavy proteinuria. Would like to understand how you would approach this? Would that be similar to how you handle AI in adults?

    That means the egg he came from and the egg you came from had high heteroplasmy. The maternal history is huge.

    You are spot on about that! I am currently facing a diasbling health challenge which has put me out of work. My nutreval showed severe mitochondrial dysfunction( which may be a common characteristic with majority of diseases including my son’s) Mito cocktails and gut dysbiosis Rx didn’t get me very far and I am just beginning to understand why they don’t help him either.
