I did get to see most of it, @Gingergrrl, though I missed Peter Rowe's presentation, which I particularly wanted to hear. I think I will get the videos in time and be able to see that. I did watch a great deal of DI's annual conference last month and a few of the talks were almost identical, but even there... I picked up a bit more from hearing them again.

Really great presenters overall--I LIKE so many of these doctors and wish I could go see quite a few of them! In addition to being so smart, they are --on the whole--amazingly compassionate. One is himself a POTS patient (autoimmune) who was 100% bedridden for a year, so his perspective was really nice.

Seems to me from my rather limited vantage that there is an increasing focus on three things: SFN, autoimmune dysautonomia, and assessing and treating the ways that dysautonomia manifests in the gut.

I hope it's okay to put this question here. I have seen alpha and beta adrenergic antibodies as a cause for dysautonomia resulting in hypertension. What is the cause of dysautonomia with hypotension?

Taylor Doherty, UC San Diego
I just Googled him and am posting a link from Twitter re: his lab which contains some of his posts re: Autoimmune POTS. His bio with UCSD says that is an allergist/immunologist and he sounds like an excellent doctor! Thank you for this info @Jyoti!

@Gingergrrl The link works. Very interesting!
Thanks for letting me know that it worked! Even though I am not looking for a doctor at present, I am always gathering into for the future and my former allergist/immunologist retired in 2020 :(. This doctor (Taylor Doherty) is about two hours south of me but I had never heard of him before and am glad to know about him!
