403255_tn?1278816866 The doctor said it was probably from dehydration, low blood sugar or standing for too long. It only happened once, but it was definitely scary. Good luck with everything.
612749_tn?1221078525 Iron is fat metabolised and can be toxic at high levels, unless he has low blood iron ( which I doubt w healthy eathing) it is not needed. In fact it has been proven to be healthy for men to donate blood, so their body can produce some new. Hope this helped, Please make him see a doctor, this could be nothing or it could be life threatining.
Avatar_n_tn what territory of vessel was it in?) was not due to low blood sugar but likely the high blood pressure, athrosclerois, and heart problems.
Avatar_f_tn It could be a problem with blood pressure, blood sugar or a sign of something else. That said, with me it was a problem with blood sugar levels. Drinking lots of water, eating steadily all day with plenty of healthy calories, and not overdoing my activity mostly resolved it. And my baby was totally healthy and actually really strong. It was just me having the problem. So your baby could be fine.

Avatar_f_tn I had paramedics called out to me and had tests done like blood, egg and blood pressure. My blood was fine, i have a very fast blood rate and low blood pressure. Before i faint, my heart starts to race and first aiders have counted my pulse and has come to 114 per minute. I can feel my heart rate pulsing really fast before i faint, and i also get very clammy hands.
Avatar_f_tn I have had a poor appetite, nausea, some diarrhea, extreme fatigue, hot and cold sweats, blurry vision, dizziness, deleria, anxiety, poor response to stress levels, lethargy, extreme pain in my legs and feet, numbness and tingling in my arms and hands I went to my physician and he had know explanation for why my blood sugar levels were high, my blood pressure was elevated despite taking medications. He sent me to the emergency room for iv fluids.
171927_tn?1294027323 Is it common to see fainting / low blood pressure (blood pressure changes) w/ Lupus? I had to be taking by ambulance to emergency last night because I had an almost complete black out, weakness in my legs, profuse sweating and tingling which ended up resolving itself after a few hours (although when it first started I wasn't sure I was going to be able to stay awake). I wonder if this is at all possible with Lupus?
Avatar_n_tn Can low blood sugar cause dizziness and fainting ? I recovered in a minute and had extreme thirst. But the feeling of slight dizziness, heavy head and thiorst comes and goes for the last 4 days. What is it and what should i do ?
Avatar_n_tn Hi, Is her blood pressure and blood sugar in the normal range? This could be due to vasovagal syncope, low blood sugar levels, low blood pressure. You need to consult your doctor to rule out the above as a cause of her symptoms. Is she eating well, sleeping well? Does she have any stress - work or home related? Does she have adequate water and fluids daily? Let us know the above details so that we may be able to help you.
Avatar_n_tn I was diagnosed with Type 1 at the age of 50 (with a GC of 1250.) For five years previous to my diagnosis, I suffered blackouts (several each year). My endo thinks that the blackouts are different from the diabetes. This may be true because I never expereinced any of the given diabetes warning signs. There was never any increased urination. Never any increased thirst! Etc. What is the comment? Can Type 1 diabetic fainting happen (in adults) without the warning signs?
Avatar_f_tn Its possible you have low blood sugar or are a little dehydrated. Have you tried eating anything when you feel these spells coming on? Are you drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day?
Avatar_n_tn Endocrine problems, such as an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), low blood sugar levels, and in some cases, diabetes, may lead to hypotension and hence lightheadedness and an off balance feeling. Certain types of epilepsies and seizures too can cause similar symptoms. If she has an accompanying headache then you must also look at benign intracranial hypertension.
Avatar_f_tn Hello, How are your sugar levels, sometimes, when they get too low, you can faint, also, are you drinking enough water?
Avatar_n_tn Hi, Both high and low sugar levels can cause seizures. This a problem specially seen in diabetics whose blood sugar levels fluctuate over time due to medications, concurrent illnesses and metabolic factors. This seems to be likely cause in your friend’s case too. I would suggest you to ask her to discuss this issue with her treating doctor and keep a close watch on her blood sugar levels. If the condition still persists she needs to undergo an EEG exam to rule out epilepsy.
Avatar_n_tn Normally blood sugar levels rise after eating. What causes my blood sugar levels to drop after I eat? Even if I eat candy or other sugar sweets this happens. I experience a drop of sometimes 30-40 points. Could this be a pancreas issue or could this be related to the bowel resectioning I had two years ago? I take no medication for diabetes. I was only told by my gp to monitor blood sugar levels after a fasting blood sugar test was over 130. My A1C level is 4.6.
Avatar_n_tn So you should get the relevant investigations done - blood sugar level - fasting and post prandial; blood pressure monitoring - while sleeping if possible; blood sodium levels ( serum electrolytes) and consult a physician simultaneously.
Avatar_f_tn In hypoglycaemia, the sugar levels in the blood drop too low. Ensure that your daughter eats regularly. Chocolate and sugary foods will give her a blood rush and then drop dramatically. The types of foods she needs to eat at those that are slow energy release foods. Porridge, peanuts, fruit that contain fibre like apples, wholemeal and grainy breads. You will find more slow release energy foods on the web. You should really take her to the doctor to get checked out.
Avatar_f_tn For the last 10 months or so, I've been having a hard time with what I was told was reactive hypoglycemia. I get all the symptoms of hypoglycemia without having the low blood sugar. I addressed this issue with my GI doctor because I have been eating dairy and gluten free, eating 6 meals a day (now every two hours), and drink liquids between my meals. I do try to not eat sugar, eat a lot of meat when I can afford it, nuts, fruits, veggies, and I still get symptoms.
Avatar_f_tn thank you all so far. I'll speak with my parents... but it seems like they are always busy and ... they don't like spending money... so... i don't know.... sometimes from the look in their faces its liek they think i'm just kidding or something. its problaby because when i was younger i had a lot of chest pains but then i had a CAT or something like that and it turned out to be nothing... but i really REALLY did have chest pains....*sighs i'll talk to them... hopefully i'll be okay...
Avatar_m_tn If your cardio and heart test keep coming back saying nothing wrong, maybe have your blood sugar checked? If your blood sugars get too low, it can make you faint (just like what happens to diabetics). Check to see if you are developing diabetic issues?
2033435_tn?1329947108 Have you been tested for diabetes to make sure your blood sugar didn't go too low? There are too many things that could cause a faint, for us to even speculate.
624829_tn?1240759271 Hi, Thanks for writing in. It is important to rule out conditions like Migraine, Epilepsy, Dehydration, Low blood sugar levels, excessive anxiety and stress. Since he was last evaluated in 2005, it is important that he gets a clinical evaluation done. Meantime make sure he drinks enough water, sleeps for at least 8 hrs every night and maintain a headache diary to identify a trigger for his symptoms. Keep us posted!
Avatar_n_tn When the paramedics check my blood pressure, blood sugar and heart rate at the time I faint, it's perfectly normal. The cardiologist has given my heart a clean bill of health. I've reasearched vasovagal and the things that cause that have nothing to do with what I'm experiencing.
Avatar_m_tn make sure your blood sugar levels are optimal, 2. You thyroid function is properly regulated. When I had been studying Dr Broda Barnes work ( probably one of the top doctors in research and treatment of thyroid dysfunction ever!), one particular finding stayed with me. From ALL the thousands of patients he treated for hypothyroid (using natural desiccated thyroid ) NONE of these patients developed Lupus!!!
147803_tn?1234403260 ) I agree with the other ladies though, it would be a good idea to check in with your doctor just to make sure your blood pressure and sugar levels are ok. You could even go to your local grocery store and get your bp checked there in the meantime to see if it is within the normal range for you.
Avatar_f_tn I had it so badly before I got so sick, that I use to pass out, did a tilt table test, which I failed and they named it Neurocardiogenic syncope. So yes, that seems to be a common thread. I also have a very low body temp. Hang in there.
Avatar_n_tn All times I was very stoned, probably had not eaten well (low blood sugar levels), with friends who told me afterwards that I had lost consciousness for a few seconds, my eyes had rolled back and I had somewhat convulsed. My question is: Is there any way I can have epilepsy with these signs? My fainting only comes after smoking high quantities of weed and not eating properly. I am a healthy individual otherwise and have never experienced anything of this sort outside being stoned.
Avatar_f_tn Your symptoms could be due to excessive stress and sleep deprivation. Other causes could be dehydration, low blood sugar, low or high blood pressure, ear problems, and poor eyesight. You have mentioned vasovagal syncope; it is the most common cause of fainting which can be triggered by stress, hyperthermia, hunger, and nausea and vomiting. Is there a trigger for your symptoms?
