From Olmsted Township, Ohio, USA:

For about five months, my 15 year old daughter, who does not have diabetes, gets shaky, lightheaded, dizzy during sports. Sometimes she gets short of breath, sometimes she throws up, and sometimes her heart rate goes up. It is not every time she plays a sport, but that is the only time she has had any problem. She has had cardiac tests which were a negative. Could this be hypoglycemia?


It could be hypoglycemia, adrenal insufficiency, or asthma, and it might even be anxiety (stress related to the exercise). You should discuss this in some detail with her physicians and perhaps have her reproduce these symptoms in the office with some of the same type of activity running around outside.
