What is LPIN1?
Rhabdomyolysis is a condition where muscle cells become stressed, and leak protein into the bloodstream. Rhabdomyolysis translates literally into ‘dissolution of skeletal muscle’. When this occurs you feel symptoms of muscle discomfort, including aches and pain on pressure – a little like you feel after a heavy bout of exercise. There are many conditions which can also cause rhabdomyolysis.
LPIN1 is a recently discovered genetic condition that can cause rhabdomyolysis on a massive scale, often without any apparent significant trigger, and is potentially life threatening.
