Autonomic Neuropathy

Effective Treatment to
Ease the Symptoms of
Nerve Damage

Autonomic Neuropathy

One of the most serious complications of diabetes, autonomic neuropathy can gradually cause nerve damage throughout the body. Injured autonomic nerves can affect your blood pressure, heart rate, perspiration patterns, bowel movements, bladder emptying and digestion. Detecting and monitoring impaired autonomic function in patients with diabetes is important. Dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with diabetes, HealthQuest, a healthcare center in Brooklyn, NY provides diabetic autonomic neuropathy treatment that helps to slow down the progress of the disease.

A form of peripheral neuropathy, the condition can cause dysfunction of every part of the body including the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, pupillary, sudomotor, and neuroendocrine systems.

Based on the nerves affected, symptoms for this condition vary. Patients may experience urinary problems, dizziness and fainting, sweating abnormalities and difficulty digesting food. The incidence of this neuropathy may increase with the duration of disease.

Our skilled and experienced healthcare specialists aim at treating the underlying cause of nerve damage.

Treatment is based on what part of your body is mainly affected by nerve damage.

Our treatment programs include:
