Dr. Diana Driscoll, BIO

Dr. Diana Driscoll is an internationally recognized researcher, inventor, speaker, author, and patient advocate. An optometrist by education, she was disabled for over a decade with “invisible illnesses”. Now fully recovered, she is the recipient of two patents to date and continues her research as President of Genetic Disease Investigators. She is the founder and Clinical Director of POTS Care — the only clinic dedicated to treating the underlying medical causes of POTS — not just the symptoms.

Dr. Driscoll graduated summa cum laude from both The University of Houston College of Optometry and The University of Texas at Austin. She is a member of the International Society of Neurovascular Disease, the American Headache Society, the Medical Advisory Board for EDS Network C.A.R.E.S, the American Optometric Association, the Tear Film and Ocular Surface Society, and served as a medical advisor for the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation.

Her peer-reviewed medical abstracts include those involving vascular abnormalities in the fundus of POTS patients, the etiology of left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, and the use of acetazolamide in multiple sclerosis. She is the author of “The Driscoll Theory” — the publication revealing the propensity for high intracranial pressure in POTS patients that dramatically altered how this condition was evaluated and treated. She has also authored “Your Eyes and EDS”, and was the chief author of the “Ophthalmology Medical Resource Guide” for Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation.

Dr. Driscoll is the recipient of numerous awards for patient advocacy and continues to donate her time to help others across the globe through her online forum and videos on YouTube.

Her work in chronic inflammation, the autonomic nervous system, collagen disorders, and organ dysfunction can help others live their best life, as well as have their best body and mind.

    I had surgery in 2011 to remove my gallbladder. The Dr recommended an additional “surgery to fix my GERD.” The surgery was called, Nissan Fundoplication. The day after surgery, I was sent home and told to stay on a soft diet.
    My stomach is paralyzed from the surgery. I kept going back to the surgeon with symptoms of gastroparesis but he released me with recommendations to start clear diet.
    Long story short version….the surgery left me unable to eat anything without having nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
    I’ve been to several doctors and there isn’t anything they can do. I even had one doctor tell me that my diet would be limited to whatever dissolves in water! Gastroparesis has been relentless and cruel to me. I developed diabetes on top of that. Also, I was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in 2018…based on how I scored on the Neuropsych tests I took.
    Is there anyway you can help? My nutrition is horrible. I’m not on any vitamins or supplements. My hair is thinning. My short term memory is severely affected.
    Thank you,
    Pam Bell
