Type-1 Diabetis

My daughter Casey just had a fainting episode.  She was diagnosed as type-1 when she was 7 years old. She is doing well with it however, now at 18 she just had a fainting spell off the kitchen bar chair.  She seemed almost out but had tummy twitches while coming out of it slowly (2 minutes). Her blood was fine so we are clueless as to what happened. This is a first after 11 years. Not sure what happened, she is OK now just fussy hands and legs.  Laying down with glass of water.

Anyone else ever had this happen out of the blue?

Dad

Hi there!

If the blood sugars were fine, this could have occurred due to a brief episode of hypotension/ low blood pressure possible secondary to stress, menstruation etc. A single episode may not be anything to worry about. She could try lying flat and taking some fluids. If the episode repeats, an evaluation by a physician may be sought.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
