Doctors do not have a checklist to go by, but some underlying causes may prompt them to make a tentative diagnosis of dysautonomia. Amyloidosis is the accumulation of harmful proteins in various tissues or peripheral nerves, resulting in dysautonomia symptoms. Other causes include autoimmune diseases such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, a genetic neurological disorder that also affects peripheral nerves, and gastrointestinal disorders such as Celiac or Crohn's. It can be challenging for physicians to identify these causes.
