My friend has Lupus and finds that a half a Mars bar energizes her when she's tired. Should she get a diabetes test?

She is not taking any medication currently.

Lupus is not related to diabetes. Your friend should discuss her issues with her internist as well as with her rheumatologist.

She is probably not affected by diabetes. Lupus can make you extremely tired and the sugar will help energize her. She should take her medication though.

A Mars candy bar would energize anyone when they are tired due to the high sugar content. This is not necessarily a sign of diabetes. If she is tired often, this may be indicative of an illness.
