What if you went to get up one day, but couldn't?
People suffering from POTS miss out on so much of life and then become the missing. Help us sponsor research into POTS and provide advocacy so people living with POTS can get the treatment and support they need.
A brighter future for those living with POTS, through advocacy, support and research.
The Australian POTS Foundation is committed to improving outcomes for those with POTS by raising funds for improved research, advocacy and support for those living with POTS. The Foundation is currently run entirely by volunteers. Beyond minimal running costs, all funds raised will go directly to improving research, education and support for those with POTS in Australia.

What Is POTS?
A Common Form Of Dysautonomia.
POTS is a condition of the autonomic nervous system which largely affects women of child-bearing age but can be experienced by both men and women of any age.
Living With POTS
There is no single blood marker or diagnostic study that can determine whether a person has POTS.
This is perhaps one of the reasons why many people have a long delay between onset of symptoms and POTS diagnosis.
Diagnosis is based on the presence of a cluster of symptoms.
