Q. Lately, I have had difficulty controlling my eating and my sugar has been elevated.  I find myself, always, hungry and most of the time ravenous.  I need some good advice.

A. Excessive hunger can be a symptom of hyperglycemia.  Other symptoms include excessive thirst, frequent urination, and blurred vision.  Talk with your physician about your elevated blood sugar levels and excessive hunger to evaluate whether adjustments in your treatment should be made.

After speaking with your doctor, you may also want to speak with a dietitian about including foods in your meal plan that keep you satiated (feeling full or satisfied).

Foods with fiber, protein, or fat tend to make you feel full for a longer period of time and may curb hunger.  Fibrous foods include vegetables, whole grains, beans and legumes, and fruits (whole fruits not juice). Lean protein foods include poultry, seafood, lean meats, and low fat cheese.  Heart healthy fats include nuts, olive oil or canola oil (use caution with fats especially if you are trying to lose weight).
