From Denver, Colorado, USA:

My boyfriend, who has type 2 diabetes treated with pills, is always tired. He takes approximately two to four naps per day and can fall asleep at the drop of a hat, and this has only been since he was diagnosed two years ago with the diabetes. I worry because he also has to take an aspirin each day for his heart. I don't know if this tiredness is caused by the diabetes or his heart condition. I guess it could be a little of both. He is only about 20 pounds overweight so I really don't think that would be the reason.

Why do you think my boyfriend is so tired all the time? What are some solutions?


I am afraid I cannot answer your question because I do not know all the information to make a decision. It is possible that poorly controlled diabetes makes a person tired. It is also possible that heart problems can cause this problem.

I would suggest he see his physicians and ask this question. They would be in a better position to answer it.
