High dose of metformin can cause vitamin b12 deficiency. Taking supplements can help. Take anything containing methylcobalamin rather than cyanocobalamin. Also, this capsule called MS4 is supposed to be good for this "tiredness"

She can take tab Matilda forte or A to Z gold once daily. Other than that can also take calcium and vitamin D supplements.
