Coenzyme Q10 deficiency

Although coenzyme Q10 can be made in the body, deficiency states can occur. They may be caused by nutritional deficiencies, a genetic or acquired defect in synthesis or because of increased tissue needs due to a medical condition such as heart disease. Coenzyme Q10 deficiency can worsen or cause many disease conditions. Older people in general may need more coenzyme Q10 as levels of this vital nutrient appear to decline with age.

Coenzyme Q10 deficiencyAs the heart is one of the most metabolically active tissues in the body and requires a large amount of ATP to function efficiently, coenzyme Q10 deficiency seriously affects the heart. Deficiency has also been linked to a wide range of other conditions including cancer, muscular dystrophy, diabetes, obesity, periodontal disease, lowered immune function, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's disease.
