It is involved in the control of heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, respiration, digestion and other vital functions. Dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system can produce the apparent malfunction of the organs it regulates. For this reason, dysautonomia patients often present with numerous, seemingly unrelated maladies. Diagnosis frequently requires a specialist familiar with autonomic dysfunction and the various disorde

Our bodies operate in perfect homeostasis and we stand up with little effort. However, the simple act of standing up can be a

These scenarios add a layer of complexity to a patient’s diagnostic journey, as well as their treatment plan. When one of those illnesses is an eating disorder, the complexities can be significantly magnified. Eating disorders, which include bulimia nervosa and anorexia nervosa, are defined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) as follows: "Feeding and eating disorders are characterized by a persistent disturbance of eating or eating-relate
