Your info on this is helpful to me, too.

I also have lightheadedness, etc. when I haven't eaten. I agree with Racer and Dove that it is usually simple to manage--have something available in case it happens, but mostly, plan to eat healthfully and at the frequency that your body's signals tell you to.
Also, I once had anemia that made me faint-black out, especially when changing from sitting to standing. Had my iron checked, it was low, treated the anemia, symptoms went away.
As for fainting when blood is drawn--I believe this tendency to "faint at the sight of blood" tends to run in families and has its roots in an adaptive survival strategy. I think I read about it in the book "Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers" which is a terrific book about humans and stress. It is interesting, informative and very entertaining. By a physiologist whose name I cannot remember at the moment.
