Dr. Plotnikoff Joins POTS Medical Advisory Board
August 7, 2020
We are pleased to announce that our Founder & Medical Director Gregory A. Plotnikoff, MD, MTS, FACP has accepted an invitation to join the medical advisory board for the STANDING UP to POTS 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
STANDING UP to POTS (SUTP) is committed to supporting research for postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).
POTS falls under the more general umbrella of disorders called dysautonomia. POTS, like all dysautonomias, is characterized by dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system which controls many “automatic” physiological functions including blood pressure, heart rate, blood vessel and pupil diameter, movements of the digestive tract, and body temperature. In dysautonomia, the person can suffer from a wide range of symptoms that are ultimately connected by the dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.
Are you or is someone you know suffering from POTS?… Call us at (612) 345-5029 to find out how Dr. Plotnikoff and our team at Minnesota Personalized Medicine can be helpful.
