  • Autonomic neuropathy

    Definition: Autonomic neuropathy occurs when the nerves that control involuntary bodily functions are damaged. This may affect blood pressure, temperature control, digestion, bladder function and even sexual function. The nerve damage interferes with the messages sent between the brain and other organs and areas of the autonomic nervous system, such as the heart, blood vessels and sweat glands. While diabetes is generally the most common cause of autonomic neuropathy, other health conditions even an infection, may be to blame. Some medications also may cause nerve damage.

    Statistics: In Norway statistical analysis were given as the large fibre neuropathy is characterised by painless paresthesia with impairment of vibration, joint position, touch and pressure sensations, and loss of ankle reflex. In advanced stage, sensory ataxia may occur. Large fibre neuropathy results in slowing of nerve conduction, impairment of quality of life, and activities of daily living. Small fibre neuropathy on the other hand is associated with pain, burning, and impairment of pain and temperature sensations, which are often associated with autonomic neuropathy.
