The importance of healthy mitochondrial function to all people, animals and plants cannot be overstated. Once classified as rare and often genetically inherited, mitochondrial disorders have traditionally been managed by several medical subspecialties including paediatrics, neurology and gastroenterology to name a few. This is now changing to correctly reflect the diverse clinical presentations for which mitochondrial dysfunction is an underlying contributing factor to chronic disease in both paediatric and adult patients.
There are many gaps in clinical knowledge regarding the importance of mitochondria to health of all living organisms. For practitioners of human health and disease processes, these knowledge gaps can sometimes begin early in undergraduate education, where mitochondria are only presented and taught as an organelle of ATP production. Mitochondrial function is involved in so many more vital genetic, haematological, endocrine, oncological and neurological functions that govern the cellular health of all individuals.
Clinicians will gain more confidence in screening, recognising and managing mitochondrial deficits in their patients, with up to date information on the biochemical, nutritional, physiological and phytochemical support available to use with patients.
This webinar is worth 1.5 CPE points.
