In the case of diabetes, dysautonomia is due to damage of the nerve fibers of the autonomic system caused by glucose. How does the ANSiscope reflect this? Since the ANSiscope measures the activities of the parasympathetic and sym
  2. FDA hasn't aproved yet, but you know how long it takes for any new medication to be aproved anyway, it has been used in India for about 40 years and this lab is starting to move outside India, they are starting for South America, this birth control pill has been started to be sale in Peru since last month, so I think they will reach many other countries later.

  6. I have been searching and searching to try to find an answer for the weight variation of the most of us who are affected by dysautonomia, as hypothalamus is the control center of nervious system and considering dysautonomia is a disbalance of this, I have read that hypophysis could have a bad function if it is nor receiving a good blood irrigation, can this could be a reason why many of us are always loosing or gaining weight???.......
