Instructions and Disclaimer

The Ask the Mito Doc forum is not intended to be a “first contact” with the UMDF. If you or your family member is undiagnosed and/or you are looking for a mito specialist, please submit your inquiry using the UMDF Connect form at  Please note - the UMDF staff reserves the right to respond rather than sending to one of our Ask the Mito Doc Specialists based on the question. We have a limited number of volunteer physicians for this service and may need to monitor the volume of questions from time to time. Thank you for your patience.

Keep in mind that we receive many questions and may not be able to answer them all. Please search here for responses to other questions to make sure your question has not already been answered.  Please note: As a rule, the doctors are not comfortable with diagnosing or treating a patient via this forum. They prefer questions that are more general in nature and could be applicable to a number of mito patients. We also ask that you please limit your questions to three per year.
