Dysfunction of ANS: One of the biggest culprits in autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysfunction is fluctuating blood sugars (bs)if the bs is too low your sympathetic nervous system will be stimulated, if the bs is too high, your parasympathetic nervous system will be stimulated. By keeping bs stable you can reduce dysautonomia. Many autonomic symptoms will result from this disorder.
