I have been type II diabetic since I was a teenager. My blood sugar has always been high. I can't remeber an A1C under 7.5. I just seen a new docter last week and my sugar has actually been in the normal range. The thing is I have been extremely tired. I also feel dehadrated. Is this normal for having normal blood sugars?

Thanks for all the input. I am on insulin and pills. I exercise daily ( Jazzercise) and keep a food journal along with checking sugar four times a day. Just wondering if lack of energy is due to the normal blood sugar or if it is the new pill I am taking.

you have to do a study on your body. Writel down what time of day you feel this way, what you have eaten, if you just been doodling around or have you been really hard at something. Do this a few days in a row to get started then it becomes a journal. Then, change your routine. Eat at differen times, drink plenty of water instead of sodas, coffee etc… you have to eat to keep your energy up, mostly snacks, nuts, fiber bars, and veggies. You will see a big difference!!! I have found out that you can eat or drink whatever you want, its all about portions and staying active!!!!

I cannot say Medically…however, everyone with whom I have spoken says yes. Before a person is diagnosed they often feel tired and listless. Coming down from a sugar high can do the same thing. I was just diagnosed 4/27/11 and I am still adjusting to lower blood sugar. Even though I am older…I do not have the energy.stamina I had a couple years ago. Hang in there you will adjust in time.

I have been wondering the same thing. I am always extremely tired but when I went to my doctor last week my sugar was normal.
