Hi! I’m looking for tips on how to get through high fatigue / low energy days.

This happens somewhat frequently, and thankfully I’m working from home right now so I have more flexibility (I will be going back in person soon). I woke up this morning and physically struggled to get out of bed, and even once I was able to felt like I was going to pass out trying to make it to my kitchen for coffee, then the same getting to my desk. I feel like I have a terrible hangover, but didn’t consume anything and slept 8 hours last night.

Thank you for any ideas/suggestions!

    Hi love. With diabetes this is challenging. I usually just try to accomplish task by task with the burst of energy that I get. It is frustrating but i personally haven't found a balanced way to muscle through my days yet.

    Is this something you have discussed with your doctor? I was dealing with something similar several years ago and my endocrinologist tested my vitamin D level and it was at zero. Seems that combined with the T1D is not uncommon and can really affect blood sugars and energy 🤷‍♀️ I hope you find a solution that can help you feel better soon!

    Hello! I would def let your doctor know how you’ve been feeling if you haven’t. You can be deficient in certain vitamins (iron, vit D, etc) If you can, B12 is a good vitamin to take to help boost your energy up a bit! I drink “Zipfizz” that you can be on Amazon. Hope you feel better. :)
