Our expert says:
If you feel like fainting and are producing a lot of saliva while using some unspecified diet (probably for slimming purposes?), then I would assume that the diet you are using is far too low in energy (kJ or calories) and that your blood sugar has hit rock bottom. Please make sure that you are using a balanced slimming diet which does not starve you and does not cut out whole food groups such as carbohydrates. Try eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet)to lose weight without starvation and such low blood sugar levels. Are you taking all kinds of diet pills? If yes, this could be causing the excess salivation, so stop taking such pills to see if the condition improves. If the salivation does not clear up, I would recommend that you have a medical checkup.
