    The cause for fatige:The cells are actually starving for their fuel source glucose, which they are unable to access due to the lack of or insufficient insuling production by the pancrease: Insulin opens up cell membrane channels and allows the cells to obtain glucose .Remember Polydipsia, Polyphagia, Polyuria….

      is it for DM?

    • aidan says:

      its the viscosity of the blood due to hyperglycemia.. hence the blood flow won't be as smooth,, it will alter the tissue perfusion

    • mike says:

      the cells need glucose for metabolism. In DM, glucose is unable to enter the cell for metabolism because of insulin resistance or lack of insulin. in that case, cells are starved for glucose and cell cannot produce ATP (through metabolism) and thus fatigue occur because of lack of ATP produced.
