Who might get dysautonomia?
Dysautonomia, also called autonomic dysfunction or autonomic neuropathy, is relatively common. Worldwide, it affects more than 70 million people. It can be present at birth or appear gradually or suddenly at any age. Dysautonomia can be mild to serious in severity and even fatal (rarely). It affects women and men equally.
Dysautonomia can occur as its own disorder, without the presence of other diseases. This is called primary dysautonomia. It can also occur as a condition of another disease. This is called secondary dysautonomia.
When does dysautonomia occur?
Dysautonomia can often present suddenly along with other diseases or conditions. Examples of diseases in which secondary dysautonomia can occur include:
Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis
Vitamin B and E deficiencies
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
