I did not check my blood sugar this morning, but I knew that it was low, because I felt myself shaking, and feeling weak. It would last for a few minutes. The weakness. But today, it almost lasted me the whole day. I woke up at the 4:00 hour after a good nap. But why is it that I had to suffer with weakness longer today? Does it have to do something with energy of the body? One of the parts of my body was my left wrist.

Were you able to check your blood sugar? Weakness can be caused by anything, and its difficult to tell if it was diabetes related, if you didn't check your blood sugar. Did you have any other signs?

It was probably the diabetes, I'm not a doctor, but I get weak most of the time, because sometimes I feel the struggle of wanting to keep going and then sometimes feeling I just want to give up. It can get mentally and physically tiring. I hope you feel better today.

I check it in the evening. It was 217. But I was weak almost all day though. That was it.

Sometimes when your BG levels are elevated you can feel weak as well since the cells of your body are not being fed with the glucose.

May I suggest you to test your BG first thing after a night's sleep and before you go to bed at the minimum? That way you'll know what your BG levels are and you won't have to guess. It is kinda like driving without the use of a speedometer the way it is now.
