I usually hang out in the fibro forum but something happened last night.
First, diabetes run in my family, grandmother and an uncle had it. My husband has passed out several times in our marriage, doctors don't know why. It usually happens when he doesn't eat right I've noticed.
We have a 10 year old daughter, she is big like my older child. I do realize some of it is genetics however I try to monitor her eating too. We are large family, 8 in all. I noticed when everyone is at home during dinner, she fills her plate up, guessing she is afraid she won't get her fair share. My dh and I are starting to make her plate for her. I push her outside to play and we take walks together too. To give you an ideal, she weighs 175 and is 5'3".
Last night around 10, I noticed something wasn't right with her. She said she felt shaky inside and dizzy. We gave her milk and something to eat. After a while she started to fell better then went to sleep.
My husband said this happens to him prior to passing out. My view is to monitor her and if it happens again call the doctor.
Thanks and blessings,
