I am just wondering if anyone else feels like this; since being diagnosed with T2 i have been tired alot but when doctor changes my insulin doses I become extremely fatigued; this usually lasts about a week from time i start the new doses. Is this normal for diabetes or do i need to worry that it is something else?

I am tired all the time but I attributed it to always being busy and late night reading, game playing on the computer or late night television. I noticed that on nights I go to bed earlier and get more sleep I am less tired.

I am T2 but not on insulin and my numbers are way lower than yours. Talk to your doctor and work on lowering your numbers. That might help you feel less tired.
