Living with Mitochondrial Myopathies or Encephalomyopathies
Reading time: 1 min
As with any chronic disease that progresses gradually and which has no curative treatment, it is essential to understand the disease, learning to live with and adapt to it. This implies the use of orthopaedic devices, properly equipping the house (lifts, bathroom, kitchen, etc.) and relying on the advice of experts and patient associations.
Overweight and sedentary lifestyles aggravate an already compromised myopathy.
Exercise is highly recommended, and should be supervised by a physical therapist.
