Always Exhausted

  • By macy

    Hi, I am not just tired but exhausted every day. Is it a side effect of non-controlled diabetes? My morning number run 180 -200 and 200 -250 after meals. A1C about 9. Does anyone else experience mental and physical exhaustion in their everydayhealth and life when numbers run high?

    Hi @macy,

    I’m sorry you are feeling so exhausted. It can be a side effect of high blood glucose levels – for more info these posts may help: https://type2diabetes.com/living/high-blood-sugar-fatigue/ and https://type2diabetes.com/living/fatigue/

    Have you checked in with your doctor or care team about what you can do to help hopefully lessen the fatigue and lower your numbers if needed?
