Dysphagia as a Manifestation of Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders.

Dysphagia is a common manifestation of endocrine and metabolic diseases. Swallowing is a complex neuromuscular process, with an interplay of sensory and motor function, that has voluntary and involuntary control. Disruptions in any of these processes can cause significant dysphagia. Endocrine disorders and metabolic derangements are systemic conditions that affect multiple organ systems. They contribute to the development of neuropathies, myopathies, and motility disorders that lead to swallowing difficulty. Malnutrition and critical illness can lead to deconditioning and atrophy which can cause dysphagia, which in turn can lead to further malnutrition and deconditioning.
