How To Fight Diabetes Fatigue With Homeopathy

Diabetes can lead to many health issues and one important among them is fatigue. Fatigue means a feeling of exhaustion, tiredness, and lack of energy all the time. People having diabetes can have intense fatigue that hinders day-to-day life activities. Fatigue is different from tiredness as it is persistent and does not get better from rest, unlike tiredness. The tiredness in diabetes results from an increase in blood glucose levels either due to lack of insulin or inability of insulin to work effectively to use sugar for energy. Insulin is required to transport glucose from blood into cells to be used for energy. When the sugar from the blood is unable to enter into cells either due to insufficient insulin or when insulin is not working, then we do not get the required energy and feel tired. Fatigue in diabetes may also arise from use of certain medicines (as for example – corticosteroids, statins, metformin). Another reason for fatigue here can be dehydration that results from passing urine frequently in diabetics. Next, sleep disruption at night from frequent waking up to urinate or drinking water often affects the quality of sleep and can contribute to fatigue. Sleep disturbance from peripheral neuropathy symptoms (like tingling, pin needle sensation, burning sharp pain in feet, hands, arms or legs) that can occur in diabetics might also result in fatigue. Weight loss occurring in diabetic people may also contribute to fatigue. Kidney disease in diabetes is also related to fatigue. Other symptoms seen in diabetics besides weakness include increased thirst for water, increased appetite, and frequent urge to pass urine. There may also occur numbness/tingling in the hands or feet, dryness of the skin and blurred vision. Long-term infections and slow wound healing can also be there.
