Target: Uk prime minister
Region: GLOBAL

Petition Background (Preamble):

Many medical conditions are being misdiagnosed. These conditions are all caused by a Mitochondrial Disorder:

- Alzheimers
- Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
- Atherosclerosis
- Autism
- Blindness
- Cancers
- Cardio myopathies
- Deafness
- Diabetes type 1+2
- Epilepsy
- Heart disease
- Huntingtons
- Infertility
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
- Migraines
- Mental illnesses
- Muscular dystrophie
- Strokes
- Parkinson's Disease
- Normal muscle fatigue
And many more conditions.

After my girlfriend was diagnosed with this condition we were told.that there is no cure or treatment and that government funding is little.

This condition effects 1 in 20,000 people and most never know they have it as diagnoses is very difficult.


We, the undersigned, call upon the UK government, and especially the Prime Minister to provide the public with more information about this condition and to help in the funding of the ongoing research carried out by the centre of excellence, at Newcastle University
