Doctor :   Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you. We should first of all rule out the following: 1. Anemia 2. C alcium and Vitamin D deficiency. 3. Depression 4. Fibromyalgia Since you are a diabetic and suffer from Vitamin D deficiency the it might be the cause for your tiredness. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with tiredness, depression. I would advise you to get following tests done: 1. Fasting Blood Sugar 2. Thyroid Profile 3. Hemogram 4. Serum Calcium. 5. Urine for micro-albumin If everything else is found to be normal, I would advise you to take supplement containing Methylcobalamin. Also you should get Vitamin D supplement injectable/oral based on the severity of deficiency. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy.
