Diseases of the parasympathetic or sympathetic divisions of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM; which has components located in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Autonomic dysfunction may be associated with HYPOTHALAMIC DISEASES; BRAIN STEM disorders; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; and PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES.

System identification of closed-loop cardiovascular control mechanisms: diabetic autonomic neuropathy. (1/693)

We applied cardiovascular system identification (CSI) to characterize closed-loop cardiovascular regulation in patients with diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN). The CSI method quantitatively analyzes beat-to-beat fluctuations in noninvasively measured heart rate, arterial blood pressure (ABP), and instantaneous lung volume (ILV) to characterize four physiological coupling mechanisms, two of which are autonomically mediated (the heart rate baroreflex and the coupling of respiration, measured in terms of ILV, to heart rate) and two of which are mechanically mediated (the coupling of ventricular contraction to the generation of the ABP wavelet and the coupling of respiration to ABP). We studied 37 control and 60 diabetic subjects who were classified as having minimal, moderate, or severe DAN on the basis of standard autonomic tests. The autonomically mediated couplings progressively decreased with increasing severity of DAN, whereas the mechanically mediated couplings were essentially unchanged. CSI identified differences between the minimal DAN and control groups, which were indistinguishable based on the standard autonomic tests. CSI may provide a powerful tool for assessing DAN.  (+info)

Sudden death in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: potential importance of altered autonomic control of vasculature. (2/693)

Current evidence suggests that alterations in the autonomic function and abnormal vascular control play a significant role either as independent triggers themselves or as modifiers of ischaemia and tolerance to to arrhythmias. A combination of several factors--that is, arrhythmia, hypotension, altered autonomic function including vascular control, and ischaemia are therefore likely to act as triggers for sudden death. The relative contribution of each of these factors needs further detailed study.  (+info)

Precise genetic mapping and haplotype analysis of the familial dysautonomia gene on human chromosome 9q31. (3/693)

Familial dysautonomia (FD) is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by developmental arrest in the sensory and autonomic nervous systems and by Ashkenazi Jewish ancestry. We previously had mapped the defective gene (DYS) to an 11-cM segment of chromosome 9q31-33, flanked by D9S53 and D9S105. By using 11 new polymorphic loci, we now have narrowed the location of DYS to <0.5 cM between the markers 43B1GAGT and 157A3. Two markers in this interval, 164D1 and D9S1677, show no recombination with the disease. Haplotype analysis confirmed this candidate region and revealed a major haplotype shared by 435 of 441 FD chromosomes, indicating a striking founder effect. Three other haplotypes, found on the remaining 6 FD chromosomes, might represent independent mutations. The frequency of the major FD haplotype in the Ashkenazim (5 in 324 control chromosomes) was consistent with the estimated DYS carrier frequency of 1 in 32, and none of the four haplotypes associated with FD was observed on 492 non-FD chromosomes from obligatory carriers. It is now possible to provide accurate genetic testing both for families with FD and for carriers, on the basis of close flanking markers and the capacity to identify >98% of FD chromosomes by their haplotype.  (+info)

Noninvasive exploration of cardiac autonomic neuropathy. Four reliable methods for diabetes? (4/693)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this work was to assess relevant information that could be provided by various mathematical analyses of spontaneous blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) variabilities in diabetic cardiovascular neuropathy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: There were 10 healthy volunteers and 11 diabetic subjects included in the study. Diabetic patients were selected for nonsymptomatic orthostatic hypotension in an assessment of their cardiovascular autonomic impairment. Cardiac autonomic function was scored according to Ewing's methodology adapted to the use of a Finapres device. The spontaneous beat-to-beat BP and HR variabilities were then analyzed on a 1-h recording in supine subjects. The global variabilities were assessed by standard deviation, fractal dimension, and spectral power. The cardiac baroreflex function was estimated by cross-spectral sequences and Z analyses. RESULTS: In diabetic patients, Ewing's scores ranged from 1 to 4.5, confirming cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction. In these diabetic patients, global indices of variabilities were consistently lower than in healthy subjects. Furthermore, some of them (standard deviation and fractal dimension of HR, spectral power of systolic blood pressure and HR) were significantly correlated with the Ewing's scores. The Z methods and the spectral analysis found that the cardiac baroreflex was less effective in diabetic subjects. However, the baroreflex sensitivity could not be reliably assessed in all the patients. The sequence method pointed out a decreased number of baroreflex sequences in diabetic subjects that was correlated to the Ewing's score. CONCLUSIONS: Indices of HR spontaneous beat-to-beat variability are consistently related to the degree of cardiac autonomic dysfunction, according to Ewing's methodology. The Z method and spectral analysis confirmed that the cardiac baroreflex was impaired in diabetic patients. These methods might be clinically relevant for use in detecting incipient neuropathy in diabetic patients.  (+info)

Natural history of diabetic gastroparesis. (5/693)

OBJECTIVE: The major aim of this study was to evaluate the prognosis of diabetic gastroparesis. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Between 1984 and 1989, 86 outpatients with diabetes (66 type 1, 20 type 2; 40 male, 46 female) underwent assessment of solid and liquid gastric emptying and esophageal transit (by scintigraphy), gastrointestinal symptoms (by questionnaire), autonomic nerve function (by cardiovascular reflex tests), and glycemic control (by HbAlc and blood glucose concentrations during gastric emptying measurement). These patients were followed up in 1998. RESULTS: Of the 86 patients, solid gastric emptying (percentage of retention at 100 min) was delayed in 48 (56%) patients and liquid emptying (50% emptying time) was delayed in 24 (28%) patients. At follow-up in 1998, 62 patients were known to be alive, 21 had died, and 3 were lost to follow-up. In the group who had died, duration of diabetes (P = 0.048), score for autonomic neuropathy (P = 0.046), and esophageal transit (P = 0.032) were greater than in those patients who were alive, but there were no differences in gastric emptying between the two groups. Of the 83 patients who could be followed up, 32 of the 45 patients (71%) with delayed solid emptying and 18 of the 24 patients (75%) with delay in liquid emptying were alive. After adjustment for the effects of other factors that showed a relationship with the risk of dying, there was no significant relationship between either gastric emptying or esophageal transit and death. CONCLUSIONS: In this relatively large cohort of outpatients with diabetes, there was no evidence that gastroparesis was associated with a poor prognosis.  (+info)

Cardiovascular autonomic nervous system dysfunction in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. (7/693)

Although peripheral and central nervous system involvement have been well recognized in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), autonomic nervous system (ANS) involvement has rarely been studied, and has shown conflicting results. We performed cardiovascular ANS assessment in 34 RA and 37 SLE patients, using standard cardiovascular reflex tests. The results in each patient were compared with age- and sex-matched healthy controls. Forty-seven percent of the RA patients and 19% of the SLE patients had symptoms suggesting ANS dysfunction. The heart rate variation in response to deep breathing was significantly decreased in both the RA and SLE patients (p = 0.001). This diminished heart rate response showed no correlation with the disease duration, the number of swollen joints, the Ritchie articular index, ESR, or rheumatoid factor in the RA group, or the disease duration, the SLEDAI score or ESR in the SLE group. The clinical significance of the diminished cardiovascular ANS response needs to be investigated.  (+info)

Apolipoprotein E4, cholinergic integrity and the pharmacogenetics of Alzheimer's disease. (8/693)

Recent evidence indicates that apolipoprotein E (apoE) plays a central role in the brain's response to injury. The coordinated expression of apoE and its receptors (the so-called LDL [low density lipoprotein] receptor family) appears to regulate the transport and internalization of cholesterol and phospholipids during the early phase of the re-innervation process in the adult brain. During dendritic remodelling and synaptogenesis, neurons progressively repress the synthesis of cholesterol in favour of cholesterol internalization through the apoE/LDL receptor pathway. The discovery a few years ago, that the apolipoprotein epsilon 4 allele found in 15% of the normal population is strongly linked to both sporadic and familial late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD), raises the possibility that a dysfunction of the lipid transport system associated with compensatory sprouting and synaptic remodelling could be central to the AD process. The role of apoE in the central nervous system is particularly important in relation to the cholinergic system, which relies to a certain extent on the integrity of phospholipid homeostasis in neurons. Recent evidence obtained by 4 independent research teams indicates that apo epsilon 4 allele directly affects cholinergic activity in the brain of AD subjects. It was also shown to modulate the drug efficacy profile of several cholinomimetic and noncholinomimetic drugs used for the treatment of AD patients.  (+info)

Unrecognized and untreated Borrelia infection can progress from localized inflammation (erythema migrans) to early or late generalized stage within weeks to months. Meningoradiculitis, arthritis, multiple erythemas, myositis, and myocarditis of the early generalized stage have a good prognosis after antibiotic treatment, but late manifestations can progress to chronic disease. Phrenic nerve palsy, autonomic nervous system dysfunction and carditis with acute heart failure are among rare manifestations as well as late generalised stage with myelitis. We present a case of a patient with meningoradiculitis, autonomic nervous dysfunction, respiratory failure due to phrenic nerve palsy and acute heart failure with systolic myocardial dysfunction.

Background: There are no studies of autonomic function comparing Alzheimers disease (AD), vascular dementia (VAD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Parkinsons disease dementia (PDD).. Aims: To assess cardiovascular autonomic function in 39 patients with AD, 30 with VAD, 30 with DLB, 40 with PDD and 38 elderly controls by Ewings battery of autonomic function tests and power spectral analysis of heart rate variability. To determine the prevalence of orthostatic hypotension and autonomic neuropathies by Ewings classification.. Results: There were significant differences in severity of cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction between the four types of dementia. PDD and DLB had considerable dysfunction. VAD showed limited evidence of autonomic dysfunction and in AD, apart from orthostatic hypotension, autonomic functions were relatively unimpaired. PDD showed consistent impairment of both parasympathetic and sympathetic function tests in comparison with controls (all p,0.001) and AD (all p,0.03). ...
This chapter delivers an overview of autonomic functions, their control and pathophysiology, reviews the most important and specific autonomic system disorders, their causes, management, and assessment, and future directions for neurorehabilitation following autonomic failure. The autonomic nervous system (ANS)regulates responses to exercise, environmental challenges, and emotional responses.The system has two main divisions, sympathetic and parasympathetic, continuously monitoring and controlling the visceral organs. Many brain structures are essential to the ANS.ANS disorders can affect a single organ or whole systems and can result in neuropathies.Alterations in ANS function can impair the ability of the circulatory system to maintain blood flow and pressure, impair gastrointestinal function, lead to metabolic disturbances, and aberrant supraspinal affects can lead to urogenital dysfunction.In acute stroke the pathophysiology is not always immediately clear somanagement has to be guided by sound
1. Thirty-three insulin-dependent diabetic patients were separated into two groups from the results of three different tests for cardiac vagal neuropathy: heart rate response to deep breathing, Valsalva manoeuvre and heart rate response to postural change. Seventeen patients were considered as without (intact patients) and 16 as with (denervated patients) cardiac autonomic dysfunction. One patient with a transplanted heart was also studied.. 2. Plasma antidiuretic hormone (ADH), plasma aldosterone and plasma renin activity (PRA) were measured immediately before and 60 min after intravenous administration of frusemide and passage from lying to standing. The kinetics of hormonal responses were analysed more precisely (five blood collections) in six patients of each group who were studied again. Heart rate and blood pressure were recorded before each blood collection.. 3. Volume depletion estimated from the rise in plasma protein (+ 11.9 and + 12.2% in denervated and intact patients ...

This study was performed to investigate the impact of autonomic dysfunction of the cardiovascular system and its association with the incidence of mortality in diabetic female rats that underwent ovarian hormone deprivation. In addition, we aimed to study the effects of exercise training, as a nonpharmacologic approach to treating diabetes and ovariectomy induced dysfunctions. Two important insights can be gained from the present study. First, the diabetic OVX rats presented increased autonomic dysfunction and mortality compared with normoglycemic rats. Second, TDO rats showed autonomic function improvement and a lower mortality than SDO rats.. Previous reports12,20 demonstrated that ovarian hormone deprivation in rats increases AP to levels higher than that observed in intact female and male rats.12,20-23 The AP values obtained in the SO rats in the present study were also increased in relation to the values documented in previous studies in intact female or male rats. Similarly, the incidence ...

Diabetes is a complex condition that often causes a variety of complications, one of them being autonomic neuropathy (or autonomic dysfunction). From the digestive system to heart and blood vessels, autonomic neuropathy affects numerous body systems all at once. Its important your practice is prepared to diagnose and treat the wide range of symptoms that patients with this condition can experience.. Sudomotor dysfunction refers to the symptom of diabetic autonomic neuropathy that affects a persons sweat glands. Patients experiencing sudomotor dysfunction might sweat excessively, especially after eating even non-spicy foods and at night. Sudomotor dysfunction also causes patients to not sweat at all, even when its extremely hot outside. Sweat, of course, is needed to keep the body cool.. To diagnose sudomotor dysfuntion, along with other common features of diabetic autonomic neuropathy, your practice should invest in equipment that provides a precise evaluation of sweat gland function.

Hi jhmom, welcome to the heart forum. I have bradycardia (low heart rate) for this I have a pacemaker, Sick Sinus Syndrom and a septial defect. I also have extremely low blood pressure due to an autonomic disorder that presented in august 05. My blood pressures some days get down to 70s/50s (and even lower) and I do pass out when I stand and even sitting up I have hullicunations and such. My bps have always been on the low side but not ever this low before. I have also had MS for over 5 years. When my heart and bp problems started in 8/05 before my diagnosis of the autonomic disorder my doctors had to take me off of each and every medication that I was on at the time as meds can be a huge factor to these type of problems. Also, to assess if there were any drug interactions going on too as over time these can develop even with medications that a person has taken for a while. I would assume that since you have lupus that you are on some medications? What I would say is if you dont have a family ...

In patients with type 2-diabetes and ischemic heart disease autonomic function might be seriously affected.. In the present study, markers of cardiac autonomic dysfunction, repolarization and respiration abnormalities will be assessed from Holter recordings and 30-minute recordings of high-resolution three dimensional ECG, non-invasive arterial blood pressure and respiratory activity.. The correlation between markers of cardiac autonomic dysfunction and markers of severity of type-2 diabetes will be assessed. Autonomic dysfunction is assumed present when both heart rate turbulence and deceleration capacity are abnormal (severe autonomic failure). Assessment of severity of diabetes includes levels of HbA1c and urine albumine, duration and treatment of diabetes, and diabetes related complications (nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy). ...
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a disease of increasing incidence and prevalence. Arterial baroreceptors are stretch-sensitive receptors, which in a reflex manner are involved in the homeostatic control of arterial blood pressure. Diabetic subjects have depressed baroreflex sensitivity (BRS), although the exact pathomechanisms are unclear. In this review, we discuss the features, clinicaland prognostic implications of reduced BRS for diabetic patients and the potential involvement of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy and atherosclerosis. Finally, we demonstrate evidence on interventions (e.g. pioglitazone, alpha-lipoic acid, leptin, fluvastatin, physicaltraining etc.) which could improve BRS and ameliorate cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction in diabetic patients ...

Compared to their nondiabetic counterparts, diabetic patients are more likely to have a myocardial infarction, have a greater burden of CAD, have larger infarct size, and have more postinfarct complications, including heart failure, shock, and death. Importantly, diabetic patients are more likely to have atypical ischemic symptoms; nausea, dyspnea, pulmonary edema, arrhythmias, heart block, or syncope may be their anginal equivalent. Additionally, silent ischemia, resulting from autonomic nervous system dysfunction, is more common in diabetic patients, accounting for up to 90% of their ischemic episodes. Thus, one must have a low threshold for suspecting CAD in diabetic patients. The treatment of diabetic patients with CAD must include aggressive risk factor management (Chap. 418). Considerations regarding pharmacologic therapy and revascularization strategies are similar in diabetic and nondiabetic patients except that diabetic patients have higher morbidity and mortality rates associated ...

Research Design and Methods A battery of cardiovascular reflex tests was performed in 130 newly diagnosed IDDM patients aged 12-40 yr at mean blood glucose levels of 7.2 mM after insulin had been administered for 3-39 days. Age-dependent lower limits of normal of these tests were defined at the 2.3 percentile in 120 nondiabetic subjects. Tests of heart-rate variation (HRV) included the coefficient of variation (C.V.) and the low-frequency (LF), midfrequency (MF), and high-frequency (HF) bands of spectral analysis at rest, HRV during deep breathing (C.V., expiratory-inspiratory ratio, and mean circular resultant), Valsalva ratio, and maximum/minimum 30:15 ratio. In addition, spectral analysis on standing, the change in systolic blood pressure to standing, and diastolic blood pressure response to sustained handgrip were determined in 50 patients.. ...

Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and supine hypertension are common manifestations of cardiovascular dysautonomia in Parkinsons disease and related synucleinopathies. Because these disorders are haemodynamic opposites, improvement in one might be achieved at the expense of worsening of the other. Thus, management decisions necessitate assessment of the individual risks for patients with coexistent neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and supine hypertension. Whereas neurogenic orthostatic hypotension poses risks for falls and can be associated with cognitive impairment in the short term, chronic supine hypertension can be associated with stroke and myocardial infarction in the long term. Because few clinical trial data exist for outcomes in patients with coexistent neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and supine hypertension, clinicians need to balance, on the basis of comorbidities and disease staging, the potential immediate benefits of treatment for neurogenic orthostatic hypotension and the long-term
Twenty six patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus underwent a gastric emptying test, a gall bladder contraction test, an orocaecal transit study, and a colon transit test. Eleven patients had signs of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, 15 patients were without signs of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy. Mean gastric clearance of radioopaque markers ingested with a meal averaged 29.5 (2.3) markers per six hours in subjects without cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy compared with 17.8 (2.3) markers per six hours in patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (p , 0.02). Gall bladder emptying in response to graded CCK8 stimulation was impaired in five of 11 patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy, whereas it was normal in the patients without cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (p , 0.01). Oral caecal transit times were not significantly different in the two patient groups, whereas colonic transit was slower in the patients with cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy ...

This study investigated the efficacy of droxidopa in patients with symptomatic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension associated with primary autonomic failure
Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension is a disorder of noradrenergic neurotransmission. Its most familiar presentation is lightheadedness or even syncope on standing. We know that the basic mechanism is impaired norepinephrine release from postganglionic sympathetic nerve terminals, resulting in a decrease in blood pressure (BP) and reduced blood flow to vital organs, especially the brain, when one stands. Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is defined as a fall in systolic BP of at least 20 mm Hg or in diastolic BP of at least 10 mm Hg within 3 minutes of standing. Symptoms may include lightheadedness, dizziness, weakness, fatigue, vision changes, poor concentration, head and neck pain, and difficulty standing.[1] It could be due to an underlying neurologic condition or other factors. To get the conversation going, Billy, what are the non-neurologic causes of OH?Continue reading: http://www.medscape.org/viewarticle/835650. ...

Pfeifer, M.; Peterson, H.; Snider, H.; Cyrus, J.; Broadstone, V.; Fell, R.; Rothschild, A.; Samols, E., 1985: Relationship of diabetic autonomic neuropathy to cardiac performance
Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is a common feature of sympathetic autonomic dysfunction and can lead to lightheadedness, weakness, dizziness, and syncope. It is defined as decrease in systolic blood pressure of at least 20 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure of at least 10 mmHg within 3 minutes of standing. OH is associated with an increased incidence of cerebrovascular disease, myocardial infarction, and mortality. Non-pharmacological treatments may alleviate OH-related symptoms, however, are not sufficient when used alone. Pharmacological treatment is essential in managing OH. In this review, we aimed to discuss non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment options for OH. ...

The present data suggest that orthostatic hypotension is often present in Parkinsons disease. Symptomatic orthostatic hypotension is related to duration of disease, daily levodopa and bromocriptine dose, and the importance of systolic blood pressure fall during the standing procedure. Moreover, it was possible to identify postural events directly related to the fall in systolic blood pressure and to define a clinical score reflecting the severity of orthostatic hypotension.. Sir James Parkinson in his first description of shaking palsy reported the association of motor features with symptoms suggesting the involvement of the autonomic nervous system.19 More recently several investigators have reported the existence of autonomic disorders in the course of Parkinsons disease (for reviews see Korczyn1 and Streifler et al 2). Lewy bodies have been found in brain regions involved in activity of the autonomic nervous system, such as the locus coeruleus, dorsal vagal nucleus, and intermediolateral ...

Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction in cancer survivors is poorly understood. To better characterize the clinical characteristics and types of autonomic dysfunction in this population. A retrospective analysis of cancer survivors within an academic cardio-oncology program referred for suspected autonomic dysfunction was performed. Autonomic reflex testing of adrenergic, cardiovagal, and sudomotor function was done. Autonomic impairment was graded on severity based on the Composite Autonomic Severity Score system. Patients with pre-existing autonomic dysfunction prior to their cancer diagnosis were excluded. Of approximately 282 total patients in the UCLA Cardio-Oncology program, 24 were referred for suspected autonomic dysfunction and met the inclusion criteria. 22 had autonomic impairment on autonomic reflex testing. Eight patients were female, and the mean age at time of autonomic testing was 51.3 years. The average duration from cancer diagnosis to autonomic testing was 10.3 years. The reasons for

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia (POTS) and other cardiovascular autonomic nervous system dysfunction. I mentioned these in Part One. Poor automatic regulation of the heart rate and blood pressure is quite common. The actual number of affected patients is unclear, since no one has ever done a study to look at the prevalence of this in Sjogrens. A large survey in the UK showed all dysautonomias lumped together affect 55% of primary Sjogrens patients. This result was based on self-reported symptoms. Many were cardiovascular autonomic symptoms, but better studies need to be done. If you get dizzy or light headed when standing quickly, get tested. It takes a knowledgeable doctor (Ask: Do you know how to diagnose POTS?) and more time than allowed in a typical medical appointment to diagnose this. ...

N2 - The suppression of heart rate variation reflects cardiac autonomic nervous dysfunction and is known to be associated with a poor prognosis or sudden death in diabetic patients. We investigated consecutive changes in the heart rate variation in 51 alcoholics using the coefficient of variation of R‐R interval (CVRR). To correct for age effects, a ratio of CVRR to the standard predicted value (CVP) was calculated. On the whole, CVRR/CVP was suppressed on admission and on the 7th day of abstinence and increased on the 30th day. However, alcoholics could be divided into two groups by their CVRR/CVP on the 30th day: one group with transient autonomic ...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Autonomic dysfunction has been described as a frequent complication of stroke that could involve the cardiac, respiratory, sudomotor, and sexual systems. Cardiac autonomic dysfunction after stroke is one of the most recognized and has been described to increase the rate of mortality and morbidity. METHODS: We report two cases of stroke-one hemorrhagic and one ischemic-and describe heart rate variability during the patients hospitalizations with improvement reported for each patient several days after stroke onset. RESULTS: The first case demonstrated autonomic dysfunction with severe reduction of HRV after a right parietal hemorrhagic stroke. The second case demonstrated similar findings in a patient with acute ischemic stroke. In both cases, normalization of heart rate variability occurred several weeks after stroke symptoms onset and was paralleled by a dramatic improvement of the clinical status. CONCLUSION: Our data established that serial HRV testing is a noninvasive tool
In ICD-10, chronic neurogenic orthostatic hypotension is coded to G90.3 (HCC 78) and chronic non-neurogenic orthostatic hypotension is coded to I95.1 or I95.2, if OH is due to drugs. See ICD-10 Index below ...
Eating all you want without gaining weight may sound like a blessing but remember, the main safe place the nuclear energy of calories can be stored is within the fat.. If the fat cells dont take up the excess energy within your blood stream correctly, this nuclear energy will flow into your brain and organs, and leads to a state described by metabolic experts as overnutrition.. Overnutrition is a critical component in the development of many common illnesses such as fatty liver disease, heart failure from cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus type 2, metastatic cancer, autonomic nervous system dysfunction as well as Alzheimers or Parkinsons disease.. People experiencing overnutrition from excessive caloric exposure have 4 major patterns.. The first is a rare pattern of an individual whose hunger is broken but their fat cells seem to suck in all available energy but dont release the energy as readily when its required. This pattern is rare but leads to excessive hunger and weight gain. Despite ...
Sleep is a complex physiological and behavioral state, which is needed for homeostasis at a cellular (neurons), organ (brain), and individual level, known to be fundamental for survival. Despite its importance, it is estimated that one third of the adult population is sleep deprived1 or complains about sleep disturbances.2. Sleep disorders, classified into 6 major categories according to the recent International Classification of Sleep Disorders,3 determine sleep fragmentation, which in turn induces autonomic nervous system dysfunction, increases inflammation, alters coagulation, and induces oxidative stress responses.4,5 Sleep deprivation (SD)/fragmentation has been linked to several pathological conditions, including stroke (in the present review, the term stroke always refers to ischemic stroke).6,7 In the first part of this review, we address the role of sleep modulation in the pathophysiology of brain ischemia (Figure 1),8-12 and we briefly discuss the current epidemiological evidence ...

The antidepressants did help, but my menstrual problems intensified and other symptoms increased until I finally underwent a hysterectomy for dysfunctional uterine bleeding. Shortly thereafter, I collapsed with heart irregularities and autonomic nervous system dysfunction in the fall of 2006.. I went to over 10 different specialists spending thousands of dollars for medical bills with no real answers-just a lot of shrugged shoulders and a fibromyalgia diagnosis.. It wasnt until my mother was hospitalized and routine blood testing came back with a TSH of over 6 that I looked again at my own thyroid. My TSH was never above 3. I had one free T4 test done following my initial collapse but, again, all tests were flagged ...

Introduction: The aim of this study is to compare three different echocardiographic methods commonly used in the assessment of left ventricle (LV) ejection fraction (EF). Methods: All patients underwent full echocardiography including LVEF assessed using M-mode, automated EF (Auto-EF), and visual estimation by two readers. Results: We enrolled 268 patients. Auto-EF measurement was feasible in 240 (89.5%) patients. The averaged LVEF was (52% ± 12) with the visual assessment, (51% ± 11) with Auto-EF and (57% ± 13) with M-mode. Using Bland-Altman analysis, we found that the difference between the mean visual and the Auto-EF was not significant (−0.3% [−0.5803-0.0053], P = 0.054). However, the mean EF was significantly different when comparing visual versus M-mode and Auto-EF versus M-mode with the mean differences: (−2.4365 [−2.9946-−1.8783], P , 0.0001) and (−2.1490 [−2.7348-−1.5631], P , 0.0001) respectively. Inter-observer variability analysis of the visual EF assessment ...

I have had a 1000 blood tests. I keep showing low complement c3 and c4 and anticardioplipin antibodies (which Ive had for years) and now antithyroglobulin antibodies. So it seems as if something autoiimmune is going on, but the rheumatologist wont make the call on any one disease. I have anxiety crawling out of my skin. I think thats because the autonomic system is fight or flite and b/c Im terrified they cant find why this is happening. It feels very hyperthyroid to me but again, western medicine says is your labs are in range, impossible (altough mine is super low normal 0.55). I have all these weird head sensations, feel pressure in my eyes, etc. Now, instead of ***, Im frightened of this other three letter disease multiple system atrophy that has autonomic dysfunction. I have swapped one for the other. I cant believe what my life has become in these last 2 and a half years. I feel so sorry for all of us. So very sorry.
