An Imbalance In Electrolytes?

My best friend's husband works for a company that sells medical devices. They were at dinner last night with a neurosurgeon that uses their equipment and the subject of my mom's recent fainting spells came up. From what I was told, the doctor said that it's a good sign that my mom realizes she is going to faint. It would be worse if she just went down for the count with no forewarning.

He suggested that it may be an imbalance in her electrolytes and recommended drinking diluted Gatorade throughout the day. I guess it is high in sodium, hence the suggestion to dilute it. I'll pick some up next time I'm at the grocery and try it out.
