I need some help figuring out some things.
About 12 years ago I started feeling tired/fatigued and foggy every day. I’ve been on a quest to figure it out. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. It seems like I get unrefreshing sleep. I’ve had so many different tests. I am not diabetic.
One thing that has stood out is my blood sugar levels. The past 2 years I had 2 lab blood sugar tests and an A1C test. First test blood sugar was 104 and second was 99. The A1C was in the normal range. I got these tests done in the morning after fasting/sleeping.
I’ve done my own testing the last month. The 2, 3, 4 hour tests seem normal. The morning 8 hour fasting level is around 108. If i do a fast in the evening, then the sugar level is low 90s.
My questions are:
1. What could cause this?
2. How do I lower the morning level if my evening 8 hour level is normal?
3. Can anxiety/depression cause this just during sleep?
4. Could something be causing both the unrefreshing sleep and higher than normal blood sugar level? I know some hormones impact both.
So I guess I think I just found an anomaly and am hoping diagnosing this will help the fatigue/tiredness.
