YOU’RE ALWAYS HUNGRY
We all get hungry. It’s a normal response to vigorous exercise, increased physical activity, and/or going without a meal for several hours. Feeling ravenous all the time, however, is not normal.
Constant, extreme hunger can be a symptom of stress and depression. It can also be a symptom of serious health problems like type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The only way to find the cause is to consult a doctor and undergo an evaluation that may include a series of tests.
With diabetes, nagging hunger can occur when your muscles don’t get the energy that they need from food. Insulin resistance keeps glucose from entering muscles and providing energy. In response, the muscles and other tissues keep sending hunger messages to the brain.
