Re: Husband's Vaso Vagal

From: J


I am a type 2 diabetic. My last cycle of recent VV episodes started when I was newly diagnosed last December and I started taking a pill for it (my body makes the glucose; the pill helps it get into the cells). The doctors checked me out and said the diabetes had nothing to do with it but you can't help but wonder! The fiirst in the series of episodes came after a day of particular exertion and being dehydrated so that is probably the explanation, but it sure was a coincidence. I have learned a lot since then and haven't had a full faint since.

It is for you and your physician to rule out more serious illnesses; Please don't use this online forum as an alternative to getting responsible medical attention and being under the care of a physician for the duration of any unknown, suspected or dangerous vaso-vagal syndrome symptoms.
