Welcome to e health forum. ‎

Diabetes type 2, needs a long term therapy, and oral hypoglycemics or insulin is needed to fill in the void, due to ‎lack of self production by the body. ‎

Poor glycemic control refers to persistently elevated blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin levels, which may range from 200–500 mg/dl (11-28 mmol/L) and 9-15% respectively.

Diamicron (Gliclazide) is a oral hypoglycemic drug, by increasing the release of insulin in the body. Hence it can be associated with side effects like Very low glucose levels (hypoglycemia), which can be the cause of your fatigue episodes.

To attain good glycemic controls, you may need change of your medication or titration of the dosage of Diamicron, which can give you better glucose controls.

Regular checks of your blood sugar as well as change in your dietary habits (adopting a low carbohydrate and low fat diet) will be needed. Addition of exercise and weight loss will also be helpful. You will need to work with your dietician as well as your ‎diabetes doctor more constantly, so that the combination of diet and medications work effectively to achieve good glycemic ‎controls.‎

I hope this helps.‎

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Depression and hypothyroidism is usually associated with diabetes mellitus. I would suggest you thyroid function tests, renal function tests followed by consultation with psychiatrist.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
