Hi Ladies.

I also feel so tired all the time. My poor husband has such a battle on his hands every morning trying to get me going.

It must be due to a combination of carrying the extra weight and the insulin resistance! It has to be.

babygem - what low gi diet are you following?

I am so glad to find out that I am not some freak that just needs to sleep all the time and never feels better for it.

i had this wave of tiredness n that was it for me i had to go bed n it just catches u like nothing. im still tired but will sleep later hopefully :roll:
i do think its the sugar we obsivve in our bloodstream like how we break it up that makes us sleepy.

Hey im going through exactly the same symptoms. Constantly tired have no energy and have very strange mood swings. I wake up tired and come home for work and have to go to bed for an hour or so and drag myself around the house doing the usual and go to bed and sleep til the alarm. Its a major vicious cycle in order for you to have more energy you have to to loose weight and exercise but in order for you to do those things you need to be able to get out of bed lol. Typical isn't it. Iv had my thyroide checked and the next step is to maybe check for diabetes just to be sure. All the above ladies have talked about low GI diets etc and to be honest it sounds worth doing. And try to eat little and often, have small meals and at least two snacks a day.

Good luck :)

I have a really great ENDO she run all kinds of test when i came to her and found that i have IR and PCOS... anyway, she said that tirednees is a symptom and it is the number 1 symptome of IR....
i feel lot less tired since i started metformin and low GI. workouts also help. so dont worry that something more is worng all u need is PCOs to make ur life a mess :-)

I wonder if this has anything to do with the lack of progesterone in our system. I went for 8 months with no AF and was feeling so bad. I was then given some Provera tablets to induce AF and on the second day of taking them I suddenly had loads of energy (and I had a cold at the time too). I now haven't had AF for three months and feel crap again and have also managed to come down with something making it even worse. I am waiting for some natural progesterone cream to arrive in the post to try as I want to avoid the Provera tablets as they can make insulin resistance worse.
