MDA Summer Camp Physical
However, it's looking like Max's MD is combined with a mitochondrial/metabolic issue. Turns out there were some mito cell changes on the biopsy. Specifically he showed NADH-TR myofibers with increased subsarcolemmal activity. (I don't think that is a good thing.)
I brought Mimi because I thought it wasn't a big appointment, but there ended up being a discussion about both dynamin defects being a possibility still and now these cell changes.
Our Dr. said that if the genetic testing we'll do in April (which will take 3 months) doesn't show why we have energy failure- he will send us over to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to talk with the genetic neuro counselor there for probably exome sequencing (summer appt? or early fall maybe?)
You know...just a physical for camp....then we went out to lunch- as you do.
