Does anyone else with Type 1 diabetes get totally ignored by their doctors when you explain about your fatigue? “Oh that’s your diabetes” they’ll say. Yeah well blood sugars good or bad I get so exhausted I stop being able to form sentences. No matter how much I sleep I am ALWAYS exhausted. Normal things like cleaning the house can leave me so exhausted I often need a whole DAY to recover and yet you’re not even willing to ENTERTAIN the idea that perhaps I have diabetes AND chronic fatigue syndrome? I’m sorry that there isn’t a simple blood test like for diabetes to give you an answer, but can you please listen to the fact that I know what rubbish blood sugars make me feel like and this is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

      If blood sugars are usually running high it can be that , but at the same time they should be checking your thyroids to. It can also be your diet the whole "you are what you eat" saying is very true. Healthier foods will give you natural energy and have you feeling better. I wish you the best of luck 💕

      The same thing happens to me. It didn't occur to me that it might be a separate condition.

      Every symptom you have after a diabetic diagnosis is put down to your diabetes or diabetic control. Despite the fact that diabetes can lead to multiple conditions that also have symptoms that are similar to diabetes...makes no sense and it is so unfair especially when your diabetes is well controlled !

      my doctor told me one of my conditions ive had since i was a toddler is caused by my diabetes even though ive only been diabetic since i was a teenager! doctors just love to blame everything on diabetes, keep advocating for yourself! see different doctors if you need to.
