I am 72 and was diagnosed AN at Mayo Phoenix4-5 years ago. I never heard of this condition. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes on my 50th birthday.. My sugars were managed with out insulin. I took other meds and my VA Doc kept an eye on it. I had Bariatric surgery in 2015. I lost 80 lbs and have a much different died and A1C is staying just below 6.. I stopped diabetic meds within 2 weeks. Not necessary. BUT the neuropathy has no specific treatment that I know of. I take the max dose of Gabapentin. 6 per day and pain meds. I cant find a medical treatment that does anything to make this go into remission like my diabetes . Thanks
I was diagnoses with AN in 2014. No real treatment available from VA Docs. My Primary says there is nothing new to treat or alleviate the disease It has become worse as I age. (71) I read from some of the reports that some sort of dementia is not uncommon. I experience that 24/7. Nothing more frustrating.. I saw an aunt start her decline in Alzheimer's many years ago. Cant help making that association. My type 2 went into remission after Bariatric surgery in 7/15 .. I was not diagnosed with type 2 until my 50th birthday. (98)/ The weight loss of 80 lbs has given me a reprieve but the tingling feels like low voltage current in parts of my body. That was noticed in late 70's..
Hello My Autonomic was diagnosed in 2014 at Mayo Phoenix. In addition to the usual numbness in my feet and to some degree lower legs, I had balance deficits, body temp swings that did not match the normal temperature from my external causes. Ie weather, inside temps, exercise. Probably more if I could detail all of them. They put me on a flat table and stood me up and dropped me back and I was hooked up to sensors attached to my body. I see a cardiologists 2 times a year for. I have 3 stents and history of blockage. I have not drank alcohol for 25 years and quit smoking Dec 83. I developed severe respiratory problems that still remain. Also muscle weakness and stamina difficulty. My vision seemed to fluctuate also. I never had the VA look into this and they never thought to check..I may have been exposed to chemicals while in the military in the 60's.. VA pretends they weren't there though. I will ask miy cardio Doc when I see him next month. Never thought to question him. I should know what POTS means but it slips me. ?? Let me know about your prognoses thanks
The Mayo Clinic in Phoenix diagnosed me with Autonomic Neuropathy in 2014. I don’t see any reference to that form in any of the information or discussions. I know it effect’s my balance, body temperature variance and possibly thinking. Any one have this diagnosis? Seems to be worsening as I age.

Thanks John I went to Mayo, in Phoenix. Not on their radar in Sept 2016 for any new treatment. I have autonomic Neuropathy and if bothers me in other ways that I have difficulty working around.
