Learning to Live Well with POTS Brightens Daily Life for Christine Esposito

By Alyse Brunella

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a condition with no outward symptoms, but for the thousands of teens and adults in the U.S. living with POTS, this disorder affects their autonomic nerves. Christine Esposito is one of those people. She was diagnosed in 2002 by Mayo Clinic neurologist Dr. Jeremy K. Cutsforth-Gregory. There is no cure for the condition, but symptoms can be managed with medications, increasing your sodium consumption and using leg compression.

Christine has been involved in this program, which has taught her how to live with POTS, including everything from posture to exercise to eating.
