Chronic Fatigue / Blood Sugars?
Hello, I'm curious if someone can have slightly decreased blood sugar levels that can cause them to feel fatigued 24/7 (Similar to CFS). I noticed when i take a D-Ribose supplement my fatigue is diminished, cognition is back, and I'm "normal" ... but the effect only lasts for an hour or so after taking the D-Ribose. Does this mean I'm deficient in glucagon or have slightly high levels of insulin?

Thank you!

Hello and welcome!

Most definitely decreased blood sugars could cause drowsiness and fatigure, and even changes in your cognition.  Have you been diagnosed with any condition, like pre-diabetes, diabetes, or hypoglycemia?  Any further info you could share would be great, we couldgive you a little more specific answer that way.
