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?
Both high and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>low</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>levels can cause seizures. This a problem specially seen in diabetics whose bloodsugar 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 bloodsugar levels.
If the condition still persists she needs to undergo an EEG exam to rule out epilepsy.
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...
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.
All times I was very stoned, probably had not eaten well (low<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sugar</span>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.
im 13 and i just passed out yesterday for the 3rd time in my life... the first time i was a school and my mom took me to the ER and they did a whole bunch of tests like a CAT scan and stuff and they couldnt find out what was wrong with me... but it seems like every time i pass out i am sick or i had just been sick... so if you have any suggestions please say them..
