  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

    I have read your query in detail and it seems that due to summer and dehydration your bp falls between 1to 2 pm. So kindly stay hydrated.
    There could be other causes of weakness like lack of essential nutrients, not getting enough sleep, a weak immune system, excessive drinking, skipping meals, emotional stress, and too much physical labor.

    Persistent weakness can be caused by health problems like anemia, arthritis, hypothyroidism, a sleep disorder, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes and heart disease. In these cases, it is very important to find out the exact cause behind your weakness.

    To feel energetic and refreshed in life, you must exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, maintain your ideal body weight, follow a good diet, sleep properly, drink water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated, avoid alcohol and stop smoking if you do and take your medicines regularly at the same time.

    Hope this helps.
    Take care!!

Or18 please suggest some more test I feel possibility of a cute adrenal insufficiency orultrarays. Ligt effect on my body.

  3. It seems that your lifestyle changes in winter, you might not be going for walk or eating more in winters.
    Don't worry about change in medications as the ultimate aim is to keep your blood sugar levels normal at all times.
  4. Coming to your doubts about adrenal insufficiency, then to just let you know that even its not seasonal.
    If you wish, you can get ACTH stimulation test done.
