When my sugars are in normal range I feel so hungry and can't stop eating.
I run my own diabetic group on Facebook called Amy's diabetes uk and have posted about this before and other diabetics said the same thing but don't know why.
Also when I'm on a low normally I feel so hungry but recently I can't eat anything because I feel sick ??
Can anyone give me some advice ??

Hi Amy…I know that when I was first diagnosed as T1 I was hungry ALL the time and lost a lot of weight as well, but now that I am under control, I feel FULL all the time…I always feel like I need to eat less. Try some good nutritional supplementation~

I do eat a lot of fruit and veg, Fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber that may help protect you from chronic diseases. Compared with people who consume a diet with only small amounts of fruits and vegetables, those who eat more generous amounts as part of a healthful diet are likely to have reduced risk of chronic diseases, including stroke and perhaps other cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers. Fruits and vegetables are a natural source of energy and give the body many nutrients you need to keep going

Howdy Amy,
WELCOME to DC.

You say you never feel "full". But I wonder if you are satisfied when you are done eating? I rarely get full myself, but I am often satisfied when done eating. What do you eat? Do you eat vegetables primarily or exclusively? Or are you an omnivore, eating vegetables, fruits and meats?

I have found proteins in the form of meat, fish or eggs stays with me longer as it takes longer to digest.

Praying you feel better soon

I agree James, I was never full when I was eating the way I used to eat. Then 2 months ago I really changed the way I eat going low-carb and I feel so much better. The proteins do stay with me so much longer. I also have stopped eating before I am stuffed and that is a very nice feeling.
