Unless you are sick, it is not normal to sleep all day for anyone. Yes, warm weather does make one drowsy, so stay in the air conditioning. Fluctuating sugar level will make you tired. If I am tired after lunch, then I ate too many carbs for lunch. But having type 1 diabetes does not mean you should sleep all day.

Heat and humidity are our enemy. GP is always worse. The glucose roller coaster contributes to fatigue as well; then include the clinical depression most T1ds have and you can feel that the fatigue is chronic. I only use fast acting insulin now but I thought long acting contributed to fatigue too. Yawn.

It's not uncommon for people with type 1 diabetes to feel fatigued or need extra rest, especially if blood sugar levels are not well-controlled. High or low blood sugar levels can cause tiredness. If you find yourself sleeping all day frequently, it might be a sign that your blood sugar levels need to be checked and managed more closely. Always consult with your healthcare provider to discuss any concerns about your sleep patterns and overall health.
