I am a 28 year old male. 5'11" 190 lbs. I am hungry very quickly after I eat. I can last maybe 1 hour after I eat before I feel like I need to eat again. I try to eat low carb and lean protiens. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat I will be hungry shortly after. I also get shakey if I don't eat. I have monitored my blood sugar and had my levels down in the 60's most of the time when I get shakey. I have been to an endocronologist to check and basically he just said eat often and eat protiens and eat low carbs. It wasn't much help i am already doing that.

I have had my thyroid checked many times it was fine.

Metabolic Panels all come back normal.

Catacolimines all came back normal.

I used to have bad heart burn, gas and diarhea until I started eating gluten free. I had the celiac blood panel test and one of my levels was above normal. Then I had an endoscope which came back negative but i had already been eating gluten free for a week or so because it made me feel so much better at the time. My symotoms were good for about a year then they are coming back. Lately I have had diarhea every morning for about a month. I have to sleep at least 9 hours or i can't even function during the day. My body feels so drained.

Basically i don't know what else to have the doctors check. The hunger makes me physically sick but eating is the only way to have the nausea go away. Lots of times my entire body will feel achey and my head feels like its in a fog until i eat something.

No doctors can seem to figure out whats wrong with me. I have been struggling with this for years and its really starting to bring me down.

  • I read somewhere there's a chemical in the stomach, if producing to much, can cause you to digest food to quickly. You may have worms. For blood and other tests find a cheap laboratory on the internet to pay it yourself because blood tests some doctors get for you aren't always the best ones so they don't always come out correctly. It's the insurance company’s choice. I'm not any type of health professional I could be wrong.
