    I was wondering if anyone else had ever suffered from extreme and chronic fatigue resulting from unregulated insulin levels. My mother is type 1 and has been unbelievably tired for 8 weeks. she hasn't gotten out of bed, and has been to every dr. including the emergency room. the best answer they can come up with is that it is Diabetes related. I am just wondering if that is an easy out, cuz she is not getting better. she can't hold her head up, and doesn't leave the house.
    thanks

    My mother has Type 2 diabetes and has the same thing. The doctors kept saying the same thing to her too. This last visit to the hospital they discovered she is very anemic. Maybe that could be the cause. Just guessing. It can cause all kinds of symptoms including extreme fatigue.
