A follow-up to my muscle biopsy from February 7th, 2017 and subsequent mitochondrial DNA sequencing.
Genetics as it relates to the fluoroquinolone toxicity sufferer
Drug’s that can mutate DNA and create a disease process are downright scary. They start the ball rolling on a pathology that often appears later on..
After so many unremarkable tests, and so many years, some of the bigger pieces of the puzzle, for me, are starting to fall into place.
I have found that there is a great misconception by many, including doctors, about the concept of senescence. Most believe it is just simply ‘old age’, but its far more….
Since our physiology is not static and things such as enzyme levels and trace mineral are in a constant state of flux, not to mention genetic variances, all which affect metabolization, combined with the fact that the FQ molecule is very complex, there is no way of determining if the same decomposed and identifiable compound will form an adduct in each person.
Just learning if adductions exist or not is not the end, just the opposite, it would open up a vast array of questions, resulting in the need for far more research. If you are looking with an unbiased filter you will see a highly heterogeneous mix of results.There may end up being one cause, but there definitely is not one destination.
