In Topic: Leigh's Syndrome And Gluten?

Do you know the genes associated with Leigh's syndrome?

 

I am a firm believer that a gluten free diet helps many auto-immune issues.  I have seen a dramatic change in a long term MS patient who went gluten, dairy free and cut sugar.l

 

I found this: The specific mtDNA defect that is thought to be responsible for some
cases of Leigh syndrome, mtDNA nt 8993, is associated with the ATPase 6 gene.
An affected mother passes it along to all of her children, but only the
daughters will pass the mutation onto the next generation.

 

And this: The usual form of Leigh syndrome is inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic trait. It has been linked to a genetic defect in one of two genes known as E2 and E3, which cause either a deficiency of the enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase, or an abnormality in other enzymes that make pyruvate dehydrogenase work

 

The problem is he's been on a feeding tube for many years and I'm trying to find out what is in his liquid food.

 

Thanks!
