Livedo reticularis is a type of rash that people with antiphospholipid syndrome sometimes develop. Resembling purple lace or a net, it generally appears on the legs or wrists and may worsen when the skin is cold. Livedo reticularis generally doesn't require treatment unless the skin develops ulcers.

Emilia Klapp, Nutrition & Dietetics, answeredATP stands for adenosine triphosphate. ATP is a high-energy substance the body produces in millions of little structures called mitochondria, which are found inside the cells. Mitochondria are the parts of the cell responsible for producing energy. They produce billions of ATP molecules every second. If your body’s ATP production is low, you don’t have enough energy to function at your peak.
