It may be thyroid and not diabetic related. When was the last time you had a TSH level checked? Ask your doc. Sometimes Metformin can mess with thyroid levels like that.

Here is more informative information of sodium flouride in water linked to thyroid problems.

The Scientific American study “Concluded that fluoride can subtly alter endocrine function, especially in the thyroid — the gland that produces hormones regulating growth and metabolism.”

Sometimes our levels are good when we test, but maybe there is something happening between tests? Plus, there are just the wonders of moods. We cannot be on the go all the time, and maybe your body is telling you that you need to take a break. I get those sometimes and I sometimes fight through them, and other times, I just let my body tell me what to do. As long as the tired and down time doesn't become the norm. Usually if I have a down day, the next day I am rested and ready to roll. I just have to keep an eye on the threat of depression, as that will drain you fast if it's not in check.

Hi Peggy… Welcome to our site. This is a sort of community - family and I am really glad to have found this place, and glad that you've found it also. The experiences you are having sound pretty normal to me or at least it describes me. I would think the weather changes, stress, and all kinds of things can affect the emotional and physical highs and lows. I have them now and had them even before my diagnosis of diabetes so it probably isn't related to the disease, although it could be. It's good that you are eating right and paying attention to your glucose. It's good that you know that there are fluctuations in your energy levels because it's hard to do anything about things you are not aware of. Perhaps a call to your doctor may be a good call, pardon the pun. There are certain body chemicals that could be at fault either related or not related to diabetes. Are you sleeping okay? Sleep apnea can also mess up our minds, bodies and souls. Are you working out? Are you over working out??? Do you have a lot of stress and/or sometimes more often or less often??? I'm not a doctor. I'm just a crazy old middle aged man who shares your symptoms. When you find out, and you will, the ups and downs of Peggy let me (us) know.
