    Are you on metformin? I don't think 8 pm is late for dinner, but try taking a little walk after your meal.

    Hello and welcome to the forum. Higher blood glucose levels will cause fatigue for many people.

    I suggest that you pose this in the 'Ask A Question' section of the forum because you will get many more answers from there. Perhaps you can introduce yourself and tell us a little about how things are going with you.
