3:45 What to do about autonomic neuropathy
Today we’re going to talk about a very common yet under-diagnosed condition called autonomic neuropathy. Neuropathy means nerve damage. With autonomic, we’re dealing with a part of the nervous system called the autonomic nervous system, which controls things automatically. It works on its own.
The autonomic nervous system is a combination of:
• The fight or flight (stress response)
• The parasympathetic nervous system (rest or digest)
• The enteric system (another system that can control your digestive system)
The #1 cause of autonomic neuropathy is diabetes. But, you don’t end up with diabetes overnight. It’s a gradual condition that starts with high insulin, which leads to insulin resistance, then prediabetes, and finally, diabetes. Autonomic neuropathy is also a condition that gradually occurs. You could have one or more symptoms, which are really the beginning of this condition.
Just because you haven’t been diagnosed with diabetes doesn’t mean that your autonomic neuropathy isn’t related to a blood sugar issue. But, other causes of autonomic neuropathy could be an autoimmune condition to part of the nervous system, or a virus.
Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy:
1. Urinary retention
3. Abdominal pain
7. Sleep apnea
8. Abnormal sweating
9. Orthostatic hypotension (POTS)
As far as having autonomic neuropathy of the genitals, you could experience symptoms ranging from pain to lack of function of those organs.
