I am tired most all the time. But some days am so tired I almost can't function. I don't have sleep apnea. My a1c 6.5. Bs ranges from 126 to 180. But on the days am so tired I feel foggy and feel like I took a sedative. It's bad. Could this be bs related?

I plan to have bloodwork done to rule out other things.

I was having episodes like that and realized I didn't need high blood pressure pills I had been taking. My blood pressure was fine and the pills were lowering it too much making me pass out on the couch after dinner.

Have you tested your BG when you are feeling tired? Is there a pattern? Do they more often happen after a meal? High BG's can make you sleepy. Although your A1c is good, it is an average of your BG over the past 2 or 3 months and doesn't rule out highs (that are then balanced out by lower BG's)
