I know that when your blood sugars are higher you're more likely to be tired and have feelings of fatigue more often. A couple days ago I got sun burned really bad by the pool and my blood sugars have been really high and I've been tired allll the time. I have barely eaten anything, like today I ate a cereal bar for breakfast and chicken for dinner because I'm sleeping all the time I don't have time to eat as much. I'm so tired that when I sleep, however long I sleep, it isn't enough. So, pretty much my question is this: Does sun burn drive up blood sugars? Can I blame this extreme exhaustion on sun burn or my blood sugars? And if my sun burn is to blame, what can I do?

I know when I overdo outside and get a bit red I tend to get a head ache and feel sleepy. Our body is working to heal what we messed up, so I can see where blood sugars could also be running high if this were happening. I have not noticed that in myself, but I have not had a really bad burn since my diagnosis.

Yes and Yes
You got a double whammy .
Sun burn and high Bs can make you feel that way.
Best wishes
