High blood sugars will sap your energy and make you feel tired. Gaining control of your BG's should increase your energy levels and make you feel better. A turning point for me was reading "Diabetes Solution" by Dr Richard Bernstein. He promoted a low-carb approach to diabetes management log before the main-stream medical community espoused it. If you can go to a diabetic nutrition class, try to take your husband with you since he'll gain better understanding as well and family support is important. The more you learn, the better equipped you'll be to master this condition! Wishing you well!

I would say exercise more. The more one exercises, the tired felling goes. Another step is to eat low carb. The days of daily eating of bread, rice, potatoes, junk good, diet drinks, are over for daily eating. Notice that I said daily. Count carbs and calories, but exercise is the biggest thing to do. Try increasing the distance. Get the Atkins Diet and Dr Bernstein's Diabetes Solution. Both of these give information of food intake possibilities and liabilities. I know that you are tired, but this is a start to understanding diabetes. Go to http: Mendosa.com. I hope this helps. Remember, we all have started this way. Mendosa.com will give a lot of information.
