I feel very sleepy in morning 11 AM and at 2 -3PM. Feel drowsy at these times. How to avoid this?

Type II for 8 years ( 120/130) with Glicazide M ( 1mg/500mg) & 1/2 tablet in night. I excercise regularly.

Do you go for morning walks? Generally, people who begin their day early with a brisk walk are able to get over the drowziness problem and can remain active throughout the day.

Thanks. Yes, I have observed that the drowziness is less when I had gone for morning walk. But, it does come in the afternoon. Sometimes, it has no relevance to the morning excercises I do!

My experience is that you feel sleepy when your belly is filled, Likewise inactive time invites drowsiness and sleep. I don't think that Diabetes has anything to do with sleep.Probably it is the other way round.

But, around 11Am there is lot of activity. I did not feel this way before diabetes. It has certainly something to do with sugar levels and the medicines taken. I agree that activity keeps one alert. But this is drowsiness, not just laziness induced sleep.

You might be correct as you furnished further details. Now I feel that the drowsiness is probably caused by some sleep inducing content in the medicine being taken. Better consult with the doctor who advocated or a chemist who can identify the contents. Any way I can assure you that diabetes as it is will not cause such symptoms. It can only cause a lack in feeling sleepy or total breakdown when the Sugar level goes to less than 50!

It is very likely to be related to Diabetes only. Eight years is sufficient a period to cause secondary problems of Diabetes. Details given are vague. Are you taking medicines at night only? I feel the problem is due to increased blood sugar at those times, as it happens after 1-2 hours of breakfast/lunch. Your HbA1c result or BS/US result at the time of feeling drowsy may throw some light on the cause of the problem.

Please give your FBS, 2-Hr-PPBS & HbA1c results. Tell when was your diabetes noticed. Also tell age, height, weight, medicines & dosages, details of food/drink intake like what, when & how much from one morning to next morning; that only will give a picture of your state for us to give you some specific advice.

=== GENERAL ADVICE============================================================

The text below is a "COPY&PASTE STUFF" from my previous replies to some others.

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN IT, KINDLY IGNORE THIS. Otherwise read CAREFULLY.

================================================ ====================

TAKING MEDICINES ALONE WILL NOT BRING DOWN BLOOD SUGAR ALWAYS. THAT IS WHY PATIENTS ARE FORCED TO MOVE FROM EXERCISE TO DIET CONTROL TO LOW DOSE TABLETS TO HIGHER DOSE TABLETS TO INSULIN INJECTION AND COMBINATIONS OF THESE. YOU HAVE TO CHANGE YOUR FOOD HABITS & LIFE STYLE ALSO TEMPORARILY TILL CURE.

You too can EVEN cure your diabetes yourself like me by following the Long Wheat Mash Diet Regimen (LWMDR). Google search 'LWMDR' or 'GEORGE CURED DIABETES' for details.

Diabetes is a fundamental disorder. It is comparable with low voltage in an electric circuit. In both cases all connected subsystems will under-perform and will fail in due course. It will affect SEX life also, if diab is not contained. Diab impairs the glucose (SUGAR) & oxygen supply to ALL CELLS of the patient. You cannot compensate the resultant weakness with liquor, food or medicines.

A DIABETES PATIENT (also known as A DIABETIC) need NOT starve. PROPER or APPROPRIATE food can be eaten EVEN FULL STOMACH THRICE DAILY! Try to understand diabetes & conquer it like me.

While following the Long-wheat diet explained in the article referred below, non-vegetarians can have MEAT/FISH/EGG in moderate quantities as side-dishes/curries.

I was diabetic from 2006; but NOT diabetic from 2009. I studied Diabetes thoroughly, because it was to solve MY problem.

Do you want to see my experience and blood sugar history from 2006 to 2013? Those are reported at: appropedia.org/Diabetes_mel... If you want only HOW TO DO, GO TO appropedia.org/Diabetes_mel...

appropedia.org/File:BloodSu...

Please read MY REPLIES part 1, 2, 3 & 4 to question AT diabetesindia.healthunlocke...

Like a licensed driver helping a learner, I can guide you to cure Diabetes because I am experienced by curing my diabetes (Type-2) in 2009.

Please report your future experience (good or bad) here for the benefit of others.

IF ANY ONE START LWMDR, DO NOT STOP PRESENT MEDICATION ABRUPTLY; IT WILL CAUSE THE BLOOD SUGAR TO SHOOT UP. TAPER DOWN (REDUCE) MEDICINES GRADUALLY DEPENDING ON REDUCTION OF BLOOD SUGAR, AS PER YOUR DOCTOR'S ADVICE OR BASED ON YOUR JUDGEMENT IN CONSULTATION WITH ME. LWMDR is not just drinking Long Wheat Mash, it is a Diet Regimen. One has to follow associated restrictions also since Long Wheat does not have muscle power like chemical drugs.

Curing Diabetes is like driving, swimming or bicycling; guidance & supervision are highly desirable while learning.

Please report progress for the benefit of others.

Hello sir, I am not a medical person. I learned about diabetes to cure mine. By the grace of God I understand many things I read, hear or see. What are the height, weight & age of your wife; this is only to see whether I can make out anything. If I can, then will tell you.

Wish you both all the best.

Thank you Sir, My wife's height - 5', wt-50, age - 49 years.

Thank you for the reply. I was trying to see whether the Body Mass Index (BMI) is okay. It is fine, only 21.5; this does not give me any clues. Sorry sir.

Hi shivkumarsharma,

When I do not get an answer to some problem, it will probably be active at the back of my mind & next day, day after next or after several days I will automatically wake up early in the morning and then there will be a solution to the problem.

Today I woke up much earlier in the morning & there seems to be a possible or probable solution. It may be wrong, but usually it is not so. So I am hopeful about it.

I have some superficial exposure to osteoporosis & arthritis. It is known to have some link to Calcium. What has come to my mind today are some natural food supplements for your wife. Those are:

1. Juice of one fresh lemon, diluted with water & salt as taste-maker (or sugar if not diabetic) in the morning, by noon & in the evening each.

2. Tomato pyuuri with seeds and salt & pepper as taste-maker (or sugar if ...) twice daily.

3. Take curry leaves & black pepper in the ratio of 1 pepper for 7 leaves; crush together & make a swallow-able ball & swallow twice daily.

3a. Take 3-4 Amla daily; do not use the large & tasty new variety, that may be much inferior in nutrition aspect.

4. Take more milk.

5. Chew half or one Calsium Sandoz daily.

ALL THESE ARE TO BE TAKEN AT YOUR OWN RISK; I AM NOT A MEDICAL PERSON. I HAVE TAKEN ALL THESE SOME TIME OR OTHER & KNOW THE BENEFITS OF IT.

IF YOU ARE CONFIDENT, TRY. IN CASE OF ANY DISCOMFORT, DISCONTINUE IMMEDIATELY.

DO NOT START ALL SIMULTANEOUSLY. TRY ONE BY ONE.

IF IT IS OF ANY GOOD, PRAISE THE LORD.

Hi sks, I have added one more item in the list above as item #3a:

3a. Take 3-4 Amla daily; do not use the large & tasty new variety, that may be much inferior in nutrition aspect.

Hi kasturisudhakar,

13 days have passed after your question & no responses! Probably nobody took it as a question because you did not ask anything; you made only a statement for the information of other members.

Fasting BS 140 & HbA1c 7.1 are high. This can damage vital organs in due course.

Please click the following links one by one & read carefully & ask me more if you get any related doubts.
