Derrick Lonsdale born is a pediatrician and researcher into the benefits of certain nutrients in preventing disease and psychotic behavior. According to Lonsdale, thiamine is a special vitamin because as the cause of beriberi it is one of only four vitamins associated with a named pandemic deficiency disease.

Dysautonomia refers to a disease where the autonomic nervous system is dysfunctional. This may be a central control mechanism, as in genetically determined familial dysautonomia Riley-Day Syndrome , or peripherally in the distribution of the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. There are multiple reports of a number of different diseases associated with dysautonomia. The etiology of this association has never been explained.

There are also multiple publications on dysautonomia associated with specific non-caloric nutritional deficiencies. Beriberi is the prototype of autonomic dysfunction. It is the best known nutritional deficiency disease caused by an imbalance between ingested calories and the vitamins required for their oxidation, particularly thiamin. Long thought to be abolished in modern medical thinking, there are occasional isolated reports of the full-blown disease in developed Western cultures.

Apart from genetically and epigenetically determined disease, evidence is presented that marginal high calorie malnutrition, particularly with reference to simple carbohydrates, is responsible for widespread dysautonomia.

The brain and heart are the organs that have a fast rate of oxidative metabolism and are affected early by any mechanism that reduces oxidative efficiency. Due to the lack of adequate automatic controls, this may be responsible in some cases for breakdown of organ systems through long-standing energy deficiency, thus leading eventually to organic disease.

Dysautonomia is the term used for dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system. This automatic system is controlled by reflex mechanisms in the limbic system of the brain and brainstem. Dysfunction may also be engendered by faulty neurotransmission in the peripheral distribution of autonomic nerves.

The sympathetic, or thoraco-lumbar outflow system, activates physical and mental action and its best known reflex is the fight-or-flight. It is one of the many survival reflexes organized and initiated in the hypothalamus. The sympathetic system uses acetyl choline at the proximal ganglion and nerepinepthrine at the distal terminal ganglion.

The parasympathetic, or cranio-sacral outflow, opposes the actions of the sympathetic system. It uses acetyl choline at both the proximal and distal ganglia. Increased tone in one system is modulated by decreased tone in the other, an essential balance that results in a continuous adaptation to environment.

The concept of homeostasis is more aptly seen as homeodynamics, a continuous reaction between environment and the adaptive status of the organism. Symptoms of dysautonomia are caused by inefficient, abnormal or unbalanced efferent signals distributed via the two systems. Increased parasympathetic tone may result, for example, in bradycardia, or increased intestinal peristalsis. Stress is defined in the ensuing text as the sensory input to the limbic system computer.

Sir Roger Bannister edited perhaps the most complete discussion of autonomic nervous system disease 1. In the various syndromes described in this book there is no reference to malnutrition in etiology. A well-known form of dysautonomia, albeit rare, is that originally described by Riley and associates and further described more completely by Riley 2 , a genetically determined disease affecting Ashkenazic Jews.

Riley and Moore 3 reported children, however, with a puzzling appearance of dysautonomia that did not completely conform to the symptomatology and physical signs considered to be necessary for this diagnosis. The medical literature is replete with isolated reports of dysautonomia, associated with various disease entities. In none of these publications is the etiology of the dysautonomia made clear and it is always left as an isolated observation.

Evidence is presented that loss of oxidative efficiency, particularly affecting the limbic brain and brainstem, is responsible for both the dysautonomia and possibly its associated organic disease. The underlying etiology can be genetic, epigenetic or due to imbalance between caloric and non-caloric nutrients as seen in beriberi, the prototype of functional dysautonomia.

Reports of dysautonomia appeared throughout the 20th century in literature that is now seldom studied. Coghlan et al. Mitral valve prolapse has been recognized in association with scoliosis 6 , a phenomenon that occurs in familial dysautonomia 2. Renal sodium loss and bronchogenic carcinoma have been reported with dysautonomia 7. Adie was an early clinical investigator and many of the patients he described had asymmetry as part of the expression of the dysautonomia 8. Orthostatic hypotension, long known as a feature of dysautonomia, has been associated with amyloidosis 9 , the Shy Drager syndrome 10 and Wernicke's disease At least three publications reported forms of dysautonomia, one with recovery for which no explanation was offered 12— Rubin studied pupillary re-activity in psychotic adult patients and autistic children and found evidence of dysautonomia 15 , Abnormalities in circadian patterns have been published as implications for myocardial ischemia, a common cause of contemporary disease Gutstein et al.

They reported electron microscopic evidence of early atherogenic changes in the aorta and coronary arteries in normally fed rats receiving electrical stimulation in the lateral hypothalamus. Dysautonomia was suggested as the underlying pathophysiology in four apparently healthy young adults with vague chest symptoms during the day, two of whom had infrequent nocturnal ambulatory syncope Both prolongation 20 and shortening 21 of the electrocardiac QT interval have been associated with autonomic dysfunction.

Dysautonomia-related symptoms have been recorded in some cases of cyclic vomiting, a predominantly childhood condition The authors suggested that an increased comorbidity with a distinct list of medical conditions in this syndrome may relate to a higher degree of mitochondrial dysfunction.

A French publication presented a case report of a woman with orthostatic hypotension, syncope and other signs of sympathetic dysfunction The authors noted that chronic autonomic disorders may complicate a wide range of conditions that can be divided into secondary, due to specific diseases and primary, in which no cause has been determined. Hypervagal responses have been described as the underlying mechanism of dysautonomia rhinitis, an interesting association with the autonomic nervous system Obstructive sleep apnea has been associated with abnormalities in stress tests of cardiovascular response in the autonomic nervous system These authors reported low arterial oxygen that was proportional to the degree of abnormality.

Thus, obstructive sleep apnea appears to operate by its secondary effect on the mechanisms involving automatic respiration. The obvious conclusion to be drawn is that the low oxygen saturation affected central control of the autonomic nervous system. Autonomic dysfunction in sleep apnea has also been associated with impaired glucose regulation Patients suffering from syncopal attacks were evaluated by studying their autonomic cardiovascular stimulation tests.

The authors concluded that their syncope patients had dysautonomia that appeared as both a sympathetic and parasympathetic hypofunction Neuralgiform headaches with conjunctival injection and tearing SUNCT and short-lasting unilateral neuralgiform headaches with cranial autonomic features SUNA were studied. A percentage of both these forms of headache were triggered by cutaneous tactile stimuli 28 , suggesting an exaggerated or hyperactive central response.

The question raised here is whether there is a common etiology to tie so many reports of dysautonomia together. It is suggested that biochemical changes affect either the autonomic nervous system itself or its central control, leading to inefficient oxidative metabolism similar to the effects of hypoxia.

Gibson and Zhang 29 reported oxidative stress in chronic brain disease involving disturbance of thiamin homeostasis. Kern and Jones 30 reviewed the evidence for oxidative stress in autism and Butterworth 31 compared the etiology of autism with that in Wernicke's encephalopathy WKS.

Both diseases involve loss of Purkinje cells and WKS has been reported in children Measurement of high energy phosphates in brains of symptomatic pyrithiamine-treated rats revealed decreases of ATP and phosphocreatine in the brainstems of affected animals A case report 34 revealed a possible complication of parenteral nutrition. When the patient died, autopsy showed the typical pathology of WKS, a brain lesion well known to be related to thiamin deficiency.

This was in spite of the fact that 24 mg of thiamin a day was provided in the intravenous fluid. It has to be concluded that the mechanism involved an imbalance between the concentration of administered glucose and the required redox potential. It might be compared with choking an internal combustion engine. This complication might also be explained by a failure to phosphorylate thiamin pyrophosphate TPP to synthesize thiamin triphosphate TTP Although there is still insufficient knowledge about the role of TTP, it is known to be extremely important in energy metabolism in brain 36— The oldest known nutritional deficiency disease is the ancient scourge of beriberi.

It has long been known that the pathology associated with this is functional imbalance of the autonomic nervous system in the early stages of the disease and its ultimate destruction in the later stages Indeed, the neurological symptoms and signs recorded many years ago in Japan were so diverse Table 1 that they should be noted in our modern era where simple carbohydrates are consumed in enormous excess, particularly in Western cultures. Neurological symptoms and signs of beriberi There is now general acceptance of the role of thiamin in the etiology of beriberi.

But the disease must be understood in its obvious association with the biochemistry of glucose in energy metabolism. One of the important observations made in studying patients with beriberi was that arterial oxygen saturation is relatively low in the disease when venous oxygen concentration is relatively high 41 , Table 1 , the same phenomenon as was reported in sleep apnea 25 and also reported to be related to glucose dysregulation It has long been known that increasing the ingestion of simple carbohydrate in the diet automatically increases thiamin requirements.

Lonsdale and associates provided evidence that the enormous consumption of sugar in America represents high calorie malnutrition 42— One of these publications 45 discussed the role of thiamin deficiency in lower brain dysfunction that could have serious effects in automatic control mechanisms of the autonomic nervous system.

This included a case report of a woman whose thiamin deficiency produced symptoms that were very suggestive of imitating high altitude sickness, caused in some people sensitive to the rarefied oxygen concentration. Oxygen-chemosensitive sites are distributed throughout the brain stem from the thalamus to the medulla and may form an oxygen-chemosensitive network The recent scientific literature involving the autonomic nervous system is represented in relation to its biochemical etiology and the relation with nutrition.

Autonomic dysfunction has been studied in malnourished children The sympathetic nervous system plays an important role in the regulation of adipose tissue lipolysis. Elevated baseline and exercise-induced sympathetic nervous activity and exercise-induced lipolysis in adipose tissue were reported in anorexia nervosa Whether this is the primary etiology or secondary to the ensuing malnutrition is not clear.

Autonomic dysfunction has been reported in vitamin B12 deficiency 49 , Evidence was provided that sympathetic nervous activity in vitamin E-deficient rats was greater than in control animals Chronic exposure to moderate and severe hypoxia increases the activity of the sympathetic nervous system and adrenal medulla in rats 52 and thiamin deficiency induces an early functionally significant central muscarinic cholinergic lesion in rat studies Another rat study suggested that the sympathetic nervous system in spleen and heart were stimulated by vitamin A deficiency Magnesium deficiency has been shown to play a role in the pathogenesis of mitral valve prolapse 55 , already mentioned in this review as being associated with dysautonomia 4 , 5.

Autonomic system excitability 56 and autonomic circulatory regulation in rats 57 have been associated with magnesium deficiency.

The biological basis of antisocial and aggressive behavior in children was reviewed with a focus on low autonomic functioning, pre-frontal deficits and early health factors that include malnutrition in pregnancy In heavy drinkers with evidence of autonomic neuropathy revealed by various tests, erectile dysfunction appeared to be the sole symptom, involving loss of parasympathetic function.

Reversible autonomic dysfunction associated with high calorie malnutrition has been reported The clinical presentation can be asymmetric

The Role of Thiamin in High Calorie Malnutrition

Thiamine Deficiency Disease, Dysautonomia, and High Calorie Malnutrition explores thiamine and how its deficiency affects the functions of the brainstem and autonomic nervous system by way of metabolic changes at the level of the mitochondria. Thiamine deficiency derails mitochondrial oxidative metabolism and gives rise to the classic disease of beriberi that, in its early stages, can be considered the prototype for a set of disorders that we now recognize as dysautonomia. Derrick Lonsdale, and a recent collaboration with his co-author Dr. Chandler Marrs. Evidence is provided that the inordinate consumption of sugar in modern America, referred to as high calorie malnutrition, can be compared to the consumption of polished rice, a dietary staple for centuries in Eastern countries.

All have male gender preponderance and obesity has been linked to cognitive dysfunction. High calorie malnutrition, defined as calorie yielding foods with insufficient non-caloric nutrients, is common in America. The objective of this review is to show that this type of malnutrition, particularly with the consumption of simple carbohydrate foods, induces thiamin deficiency, often also with magnesium deficiency, providing a common etiological component for these diseases, analogically compared with variations on a symphonic theme in music. Conclusion: High calorie malnutrition is affecting millions of people, involving the inordinate consumption of sugar and fat as empty calories. All simple carbohydrates are metabolized in the body as glucose, with thiamin as the rate limiting factor in the three enzymes that make up pyruvic dehydrogenase and as a cofactor in transketolase. Other non-caloric nutrients are also crucial in oxidative metabolism.

 Почему? - рассердился Беккер. - У меня его уже нет, - сказала она виноватым тоном.  - Я его продала. ГЛАВА 33 Токуген Нуматака смотрел в окно и ходил по кабинету взад-вперед как зверь в клетке. Человек, с которым он вступил в контакт, Северная Дакота, не звонил.

У дальней стены дрожали включенные на полную мощность динамики, и даже самые неистовые танцоры не могли подойти к ним ближе чем на десять метров. Беккер заткнул уши и оглядел толпу.

Повисла долгая тишина. Сьюзан словно во сне подошла и села с ним. - Сьюзан, - начал он, - я не был с тобой вполне откровенен. ГЛАВА 73 У Дэвида Беккера было такое ощущение, будто его лицо обдали скипидаром и подожгли.

 Да. Более или менее так, - кивнула Сьюзан. Стратмор замолчал, словно боясь сказать что-то, о чем ему придется пожалеть. Наконец он поднял голову: - ТРАНСТЕКСТ наткнулся на нечто непостижимое.
