Two nights ago I fainted, just before it happened I felt really weird, I was dizzzy and lightheaded. So, I figured I would log out get some water and lay down, but I came to on the floor. I had tests done to check my blood sugar, and to see if my blood is low, what I don't know is what would be the difference between the two. So,can anyone explain the difference?
Thanks. I'm worried.

The second thing you mentioned is probably low blood iron (Anemia), and it could be the reason you fainted.

There are many causes for both low blood sugar and low iron.

How old are you? Do you eat regulary? Do you take any medicine?

There is no need to be scared or worried because of this.
It can be treated simply, with pills and proper diet.

Food that contains iron:
* Liver and other meats
* Seafood
* Dried fruits like apricots, prunes and raisins
* Nuts
* Beans, especially lima beans
* Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli
* Blackstrap molasses
* Whole grains
* Iron-fortified breads and cereals

Low blood sugar can be a sign of diabetes, but it can also be that you didn't have much to eat that day, you were stressed, worried about something, etc, etc, blood sugar is low in such case.

Thanks, intrepid. I totaly forgot to add that in my post.


Of course, a real-life doctor is the best way to go

Oh, you mean medical doctors!

I almost have my Phd (Physics), soon one can refer to me as "Doctor".

Well shoot, just when I was all set to get long winded and boring on you!

I am in my early 20's. I eat 3 meals a day every dayalthough sometimes I skip breakfast when in a hurry to get to work, I am not on any medication, and I am waiting for my tests to come back, that's the only thing I am worried about, apart from having low blood I had that at 15, and am thinking/wondering could I be pregnant,... would being pregnant make you faint?
Thanks for answering me I appreciate it much

There is no need to be scared or worried because of this.

Food that contains iron:






* Liver and other meats
I do not eat Liver, omg hate the look of it, and I am not a big meat eater either!



* Seafood
I love Fish eat it about twice a week!


* Dried fruits like apricots, prunes and raisins
Yes, I eat plenty of raisins, but not prunes or apricots.

* Nuts
Oh love nuts, eat then everyday!
* Beans, especially lima beans

I love beans and weiners,lol I do.
Don't eat Lima Beans.

* Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli

Well, no, I eat lettuce, carrrots turnips, and cabbageand peas and that sort.


* Blackstrap molasses
No!

* Whole grains
No!

* Iron-fortified breads and cereals
Nope, no cereals or WW bread, just raisin bread and white bread.

Low blood sugar can be a sign of diabetes, but it can also be that you didn't have much to eat that day, you were stressed, worried about something, etc, etc, blood sugar is low in such case.

Shai_lene, don't forget the possibility of having spent too much time on the computer. Someone I worked with had the same problem and couldn't spend more than a couple of hours on the computer without a break. It was something to do with the refresh rate of the monitor.
