If you can eat more protein and lower carb foods, it will keep you feeling fuller for longer

Yes insulin can increase your appetite - I try to eat veggies that don't have carbs to eliminate the appetite. Yes, protein is slower acting - like peanut butter. If you're taking any other medication

It can make you not have an appetite, but you have eat balanced meals - then you won't have binges - it's hard but you have to take charge of your eating habits. 💛 take care...

How is your glucose control? If you're always high you will loose appetite x

You may have some autonomic neuropathy affecting appetite and stomach emptying/nutrient absorption. If you are recently improving control, that can make symptoms flare, but then they settle down again

With the new "normal" Not much treatment available at this time. Usually the recommendation is smaller more frequent meals (blah). Hang in there. I am type 1 48 years old with 32 years of dm.

That's right****- if you have high blood sugar it will make you loose your appetite.
