Other Illnesses

Question from Tallahassee, Florida, USA:

Why does my 11 year old daughter who has diabetes keep passing out? No one can tell me why. She has had really high blood sugars lately, and her CAT scan came back negative.

Answer:

There can be many reasons for this happening, but I don’t think it is because of a problem with diabetes. It does sound as though your doctors are looking into things, so it would be best to ask them to let you know what they think is causing the problem.
