Extreme Tiredness


Relationship to Diabetes
Type 2

I am currently taking 0.5mg of Ozempic and 2 x 1000mg of Metformin a day for my T2 diabetes. However, the week before my period and during that week i literally have no motivation and am so tired. I take the contraceptive pill so my period is just a 7 day break, does anyone else get like this? I do try and watch what i eat to manage my blood sugars and do this even more so around this time but i still feel so fatigued.

Yes I get like that and if your blood sugars are high like mine are sometimes.I get very tire and nap maybe two or three times a day.I think you should check your blood sugars with blood tester if over 10 this might be why your feeling so tire.But please check with GP or your diabetes nurse.

Sorry to hear you are struggling with fatigue @Meadsar

Do you check your BG levels at home? Do you know if the tiredness is associated with either higher or lower BGs than you are used to?
