My fatigue was mainly in my legs. I had absolutely no stamina in them. It was hard simply to walk out to the car and back in the house. I felt like crap.

Now that I am on a med and eating a little better, I don't feel quite so bad and that is a very good thing. I'm certainly not back to normal but improving. yay!!!!!

Hopefully the improvement will continue, Lisa.

Been thinking about this for days (especially since I can barely function, for much of the time)... I cant see a way through my fatigue. Between the diabetes, hypothyroidism, OSA, heart failure, and hypertension, I feel pretty much screwed. Additionally, because of 4 motorbike accidents over the years in which I came down on my left every time, my left hip is on the way out and the muscles in trying to compensate are just getting exhausted to the point where lifting that leg even for a simple thing like getting in the car, is becoming a chore in itself. I need to get myself on the list for a hip replacement. Time to have a LONG chat with my GP.

I'm diagnosed with major-depression recurrent and I wipe out easily but the last few years I was experiencing a very deep fatigue that I could not get rid of. About 12 years ago, I switched to vitamins without iron because information was that older people can take too much. Recently, I started taking iron pills at least 3 times a week and my fatigue has eased up quite a bit.

We've discussed this in some other threads. If available in your area, consider getting a blood workup through a private lab. Anything that is concerning, bring to your doctor. Some of those package deals include a lot of stuff doctor's don't ordinarily order and maybe that will be key to your fatigue.

Very true, I felt tired daily, for weeks/months, beiieved it was diabetes, turned out to be chronic sleep apnea.

sleep apnea is potentially good news because it is treatable with a machine. unfortunately, almost 80% people are not compliants with therapy within 6 months of treatment. the comfort of the mask is not good.

i've been 100% compliant for 18 years. it is un comfortable but if I don't use it I stop breathing 120 times per hour which is pretty severe so I use it even though it is uncomfortable

I turned 60 last May. It was like someone flipped a switch, I'm pretty much tired all the time. I don't know if it's the diabetes or what. I'm going on the LCHF diet starting Monday. I hope it helps!!

im curious if you have tested it regularly to see if there is any improvement as your diabetes gets better under control

I find that fairly lightweight masks are the go, for me. My favourite went out of production last year and I finally was forced to find a replacement, and I've been very happy with the change. Easier to remain compliant. I dont use a humidifier anymore, I just add a filter at the front of the machine (so a total of 3 filters now!!). However, tiredness just wont let me go. Excluding the food coma (carbs!) I still get really tired. I just put up with it now. I do have autoimmune issues and was once offered dexamphetamine by an immunologist but I didnt really want it. Maybe time to change.
