I found out I was diabetic two years ago at 25 years of age. What I seem to struggle with the most is fatigue and lack of energy. Is that a normal part of being diabetic?


Nope. Fatigue would be expected only if the blood sugar levels remain extremely high (which I'll assume they're not).

You and your physician should look for other reasons, like thyroid disorders, that can coexist with diabetes.
