Fluctuations in blood glucose levels may contributeto fatigue in people with diabetes. Find out what you can doto help maintain steady energy throughout the day.

Fatigue, or the feeling of tiredness and lack of energy, is not uncommon among people with diabetes. This may negatively impact the quality of life and affect the successful self-management of diabetes.

What causes fatigue? It can be due to various reasons – in people with diabetes, one of the likely causes is the spikes and dips in blood sugar levels. Good blood sugar control, which is fundamental to the management of diabetes, could therefore help provide steady energy and reduce fatigue.

Research has shown that blood sugar levels tend to be highest after breakfast compared to other mealtimes. So it is important to start your day with the right breakfast choice. Go for a healthful option with a low glycemic index. Glycemic index, or GI, is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Examples of low GI breakfast items include rolled oats, tuna bun, and wholegrain cereals.

It also helps if you take a more active role in understanding diabetes so that you learn to manage it well and keep your blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible. A blood glucose monitor is a helpful tool to help determine patterns of blood glucose control. Consult your healthcare provider on how often you should check your blood glucose and keep track of the results. Share the record with your healthcare provider and get their guidance on whether you need to change your diet, exercise, or medication.

Know Your Targets For Good Blood Sugar Control

In general, people with diabetes should aim for a blood sugar level between 4.0 - 7.0 mmol/l before meals and notmore than 10 mmol/l two hours after a meal. HbA1c is a measurement of average blood sugar over the past 2 - 3 months. It is measured as a percentage, and for most people with diabetes, the level should ideally be 7.0% or below. Check with your doctor to determine your individualized targets for blood sugar control.
