I am T2 just started Slow release metformin, blood sugars average 7.4 to 8 in the mornings for years my sleep has been poor I think the higher my blood sugar the worse it is, I have trouble getting to sleep often for hours but I am very tired, I get restless tossing about, fisting my fingers banging my legs, sometimes cannot get still even in sleep until I go into deep sleep. If I have eaten late it seems to be worse
