Vasovagal Syncope

Maren had her cardiology testing today, and her problems were diagnosed as Vasovagal Syncope. Her symptoms appear to be brought on by dehydration.

They did say if she ever faints during a race again, do NOT finish the race.

I have the same thing. Triggered by dehydration and low potassium.
Stress to her to drink fluids and electrolyte drinks.

It's better than having a coach call the ambulance and getting the banana drip at the ER.
