For people suffering from Orthostatic Intolerance, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia, Mast Cell Activtation or EDS. Follow me as I document my struggle towards better health.

NEW! The Study

Below you will find a link to the study:  Cardiac Origins of the Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome by Qi Fu, Tiffany B. VanGundy, M. Melyn Galbreath, Shigeki Shibata, Manish Jain, Jeffrey L. Hastings, Paul S. Bhella, and Benjamin D. Levine as published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology and linked here with the permission of Dr. Levine.

Although the study was tightly controlled and involved relatively few patients, the results are very promising.  It should be noted that another study is being undertaken by Dr. Levine's research team which involves a greater number of patients (I am one and a happy one!).
