Brief Answer: Causes to feeling of passing out in a diabetic.... Detailed Answer: Hi, There are many problems associated with your symptoms. You should consult with a cardiologist as soon as possible and to run further tests including: - EKG - cardiac echo - holter monitoring - chest X-ray - abdominal ultrasound - complete blood profile - measuring blood sugar (fasting, HbA1C). As a diabetic, you should keep monitoring your blood sugar and record the results as oscillations in blood glucose might be also the cause (especially hypoglycemia). Hope it was of help! Dr.Bardha Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
