Crohn's disease - a chronic inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract. Ulcerative colitis - a violation that affects the large intestine, in which the sheath becomes inflamed it, and on it are formed ulcers. Both diseases cause discomfort in the abdomen and frequent bowel movements.

Approximately 50% of patients with these disorders develop complications affecting the autonomic nervous system; Some of these complications can cause autonomic lability.


Diabetes and prediabetes

These disorders are among the most common causes of vegetative lability and other disorders associated with the work of the autonomic nervous system. They are expected to develop in about half of the patients suffering from diabetes type 1 and 2. These disorders can occur in people with prediabetes.

Sometimes irregularities in the autonomic system are harbingers of diabetic neuropathy - a dangerous disease, which in severe cases can lead to death. The likelihood of developing the disease is higher the older the patient, and the longer he suffers from diabetes.


Ehlers Danlos Syndrome,

A rare inherited disorder of the connective tissue, which is characterized by extreme elasticity and mobility of the joints, which is why they can shift, causing severe pain. Some patients with Ehlers - Danlos syndrome may experience signs of vegetative lability.


Paraneoplastic syndrome

When the body begins to develop a tumor, malignant or not, in an attempt to protect themselves from the disease the immune system can develop antibodies designed to destroy the tumor.
