Since you have posted this query under DIABETES community, i suppose you are a diabetic pateint. In case you have not yet found out whether or not you are having diabetes, i suggest you to first get a check done and then see what is the cause for your low energy levels.

General & Family Physician Dr. JItendra Sharma's  Response
Having low energy- can be due to many causes.

You need to check your blood sugar, to rule out diabetes.

However- the reason for low energy level in diabetes is poor utilization of blood glucose in tissues.

Hi I am 40 years old and the mother of 2 boys. I am vegetarian and have always been low on energy compared to all my friends. I have noticed that during the week prior to that time of the month...my energy levels drop drastically. I am not on any medication and healthy otherwise. What can I do to improve on the energy levels? I have also been experiencing an increased rate of premature greying and hair loss over the last year. Any advice?

Hello, I have a question regarding insulin resistance and dehydration. I m a Type 1 Insulin Dependent diabetic. Have been for nearly 16 years. My HA1c was last 4.9% so I keep my numbers extremely regulated. Anyways to the question, can severe dehydration lead to insulin resistance? I have some idea of the physiology but I want to understand it thoroughly. Let me give you the story first so you can maybe give me the walk through of it all especially the dehydration and insulin resistance. So after heavy drinking ( not something I do often at all....) , 6-7 hours of hard alcoholic drinks and no water during this time. I went to sleep woke up the next morning feeling very thirsty, it d been about 18 hours since I had a sip of water. So I drank some, and became nauseous. My sugars kept rising, initially was 192, ended up at 425 before I had to call 911. I was not holding down water.. my glucose was rising, I was taking massive amounts of insulin, somewhere in the 80-100 units of Humalog range. I take ~60 units in a day and this was in a matter of 12 hours probably. And my numbers did not drop. My question is why and whats the physiology behind the insulin not working? Something with the dehydration but Im not quite understand it. Please answer this if you can. Oh and I was not consuming food during this time so the glucose rise was not from carbohydrates.

Hi, my name is Eva and my son (2) has Glucose galactose malabsorption. Do you know if digestive enzymes could help to ease this condition? I am also worried that in time he might have some renal or cardiovascular problems. So far he seems very healthy and is growing just fine on his fructose based diet. Thank you
