Two articles investigated the lifestyle of children with type 1 DM as a factor causing fatigue, and one looked at anxiety as a factor. Factors causing fatigue. In conclusion, fatigue in children with type 1 diabetes can be related to various factors such as sleep disturbances, symptoms of hypoglycemia, lifestyle, and anxiety.
