Q.

Mother is very tired

My mother was diagnose with type 2 diabetes. She has a craving for green tamotoes and lemons. She is also very tired and feel like she cant lift her arms to work. We are regulating her suger levels and see that she eats regulary aswell on the right medications. Can the tiredness be due to her suger levels not stablishing quick enough?

Dear Corlene

If your mother’s glucose levels are running more than 10, then the tiredness may be due to the sugar levels being too high, but if they have come down to less than 10 on a regular basis then she may have another cause that needs to be investigated.
