Dysautonomia: Triglycerides are sensitive to sugar. Bradycardia (slow pulse) can be caused by vitamin b1 deficiency that is easily caused by taking sugar in all its different forms. I would guess that she is also fatigued. Sugar sensitivity and/or alcoholism can occur in families because of inheritance.
