- Vegetative lability - the instability of the nervous system
Reasons vegetative lability
Here are some of the possible causes of vegetative lability.
Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis
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.
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. Unfortunately, in some cases, they attack not only tumor tissues, but also part of the nervous system. This condition is called paraneoplastic syndrome - a rare disorder that develops not more than 1% of patients with certain types of tumors.
If antibodies are striking part of the autonomic nervous system may be signs that are typical vegetative lability. Often these symptoms appear before discovering a tumor in a patient. Thus, in rare cases, vegetative lability is the first sign of cancer; the probability of this is very small, but nevertheless it should not be completely ruled out.
Is an inflammatory disease that affects multiple organ systems, including the autonomic nervous system. In 60-70% of patients with sarcoidosis

even without treatment into remission, but in some cases, the disease leads to death.
One of the most common autoimmune disease in the world. It causes non-specific symptoms such as dry eyes and mouth, fatigue, and joint pain

affects, inter alia, jealous standalone system, wherein the tackle can be observed above lability autonomic signs.
Exposure to toxic substances
Exposure to toxic substances, such as alcohol, chemotherapeutic drugs, heavy metals, drugs, tobacco smoke, in some cases causes autonomic lability. Usually, the appearance of its symptoms indicates more severe disorders caused by certain toxins. Increasing the number of children suffering from vegetative lability, which is observed in recent years, many researchers have linked to environmental pollution, which is why many children from an early age are exposed to a variety of harmful substances.
Trauma, surgery and pregnancy
Although these three factors, at first glance, not much in common, they cause rapid and significant changes in the structure and functioning of the body. There are many cases when, after car accidents, serious operations and pregnancy in humans evolved vegetative lability or VSD.
Many vitamins, especially vitamin E, vitamin B1, B3, B6 and B12 play an important role in the autonomic nervous system. Deficiency of these substances may be related to various causes. For example, people suffering from alcoholism, are often lacking vitamin B1, and for digestive disorders is often a shortage of vitamin B12. To eliminate the deficiency of vitamins can adjust your diet or begin taking supplements
