1 doctor agrees
In brief: Good question
I had a patient with a failure of normal breathing control in brainstem .
She had pulmonary hypertension. Thus, i think that enters into the causative mechanism.It may sound strange when i say that it could be something as simple as viamin b1 deficiency, particularly if he craves sugar. I doubt very much that the doc in charge will take that seriously!
