About Orthostatic Intolerance

Orthostatic Intolerance, also known as mitral valve prolapse, is related to postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome and mitral valve prolapse 1, and has symptoms including angina pectoris, chest pain and edema. An important gene associated with Orthostatic Intolerance is SLC6A2 (Solute Carrier Family 6 Member 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Extracellular matrix organization and "Agents Acting on the Renin-Angiotensin System Pathway, Pharmacodynamics". The drugs Prednisolone phosphate and Prednisolone acetate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include heart, thyroid and lung, and related phenotypes are elevated urinary norepinephrine and orthostatic tachycardia

Major Symptoms of Orthostatic Intolerance

Orthostatic intolerance is a condition that affects about 10% of the population, characterized by symptoms that occur upon standing for an extended period or upon the first few steps after sitting. The symptoms include dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, and muscle weakness.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Orthostatic Intolerance

Orthostatic intolerance refers to the condition where the human body experiences temporary poor blood circulation and difficulty regulating body temperature when exposed to cold environments. People suffering from this disease should adopt the following lifestyle:

1. Stay warm: In cold environments, you should wear adequate clothes and warm shoes to avoid prolonged exposure to cold environments.

2. Gradual adaptation: In a cold environment, you should gradually adapt to the environment, and do not be exposed to the cold suddenly for a long time to avoid causing physical discomfort.

3. Strengthen exercise: Appropriate physical exercise can enhance the body's immunity and relieve the symptoms of Orthostatic intolerance.

4. Eat a balanced diet: Maintaining a healthy and balanced diet, and consuming more foods rich in vitamin C and calcium can improve the body's resistance.

5. Supplement folic acid: Folic acid is an important nutrient for preventing orthostatic intolerance. It is recommended that people with this disease supplement folic acid in an appropriate amount. People suffering from orthostatic intolerance should keep warm, gradually adapt, strengthen exercise, maintain a balanced diet, and supplement folic acid in an appropriate amount to relieve symptoms and maintain good health.
