ANS is the part of the nervous system that controls Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, Blood Flow, Body Temperature, Biological and Sexual Functions, Fluid and Electrolyte Balance, Digestion, and other involuntary bodily functions.
ANS testing is a highly specialized field, requiring comprehensive training that educates doctors on Autonomic diseases, testing administration, and results interpretation. During the yearlong program, Dr. Zia completed his fellowship at Harvard Medical School and is considered one of the only specialists in the state to have earned this certification.
WHEN YOU HAVE KNOWN RISK FACTORS FOR AUTONOMIC NEUROPATHY
Some conditions, such as diabetes, increase your risk of Autonomic Neuropathy. In these cases it is often easier to determine a diagnosis based on your symptoms.
