Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes
Diabetes Symptom: Fatigue
How It Feels
"During the course of one week's time, I became a different person. I felt all types of odd things that I did not recognize: mind fog, tired, fatigue, unable to walk a short distance without feeling like I absolutely had to sit down or lie down. It was like my body just no longer worked and all systems were shutting down."

"Before I was diagnosed, I noticed that I was always so tired. My vision began to get really blurry, too. I seemed to want to sleep all the time, and drank a lot. I just knew something wasn't right with me. I seemed to not be able to even find the energy to go to the grocery store. When I did go shopping, I'd come home and just want to sleep."
