    Mitochondrial disease is a disease in which mitochondria cannot convert food and oxygen into energy, resulting in cell injury and cell death. This can eventually progress into organ system malfunctioning and organ system failure.

    Mitochondrial diseases are chronic / genetic often inherited disorders that occur when mitochondria fail to produce enough energy for the body to function properly. Mitochondrial diseases can be present at birth, but can also occur at any age.
