Howie Mandel says hes home and doing better after report he collapsed at Starbucks

Howie Mandel was taken to the hospital on Wednesday after passing out at a Starbucks in Los Angeles. According to TMZ, who was first to report the news, Mandel was at his local Starbucks with his wife and friends when he suddenly passed out and fell over before being laid out on a cement bench. 

A rep for LAFD told ET that they received a call at 10:03 a.m. of a 65-year-old male experiencing a medical problem. They responded to the Woodland Hills Starbucks, and transported the man to a local hospital in nearby Tarzana.

While it wasnt immediately clear at the time why the Americas Got Talent host passed out, those at the scene told TMZ that Mandel was able to sit up by the time paramedics arrived at the scene.

Mandel took to Twitter Wednesday afternoon to share that dehydration and low blood sugar were to blame for his fall. The host and TV judge went on to thank the nurses and doctors who took care of him as well as everyone who reached out to him after the news broke.

"I am home and doing better. I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar. I appreciate the great doctors and nurses that took such good care of me. Thank you to everyone who reached out but I am doing ok!," Mandel shared.

I am home and doing better. I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar. I appreciate the great doctors and nurses that took such good care of me. Thank you to everyone who reached out but I am doing ok!
