Ever find yourself asking, “Why am I always so hungry?” That constant hunger feeling can be confusing, especially if you’re eating more but still feeling unsatisfied. Could it be overeating, or is there something else at play making you feel thirsty too?

What is Constant Hunger?

It’s puzzling when, no matter how much you eat, the hunger doesn’t seem to go away. This constant craving for food can be frustrating and might have you wondering if your body is trying to tell you something.

The Thirst Connection

Notice you’re also feeling thirstier with all this eating? This is where the term polyphagia comes into play, which means feeling extremely hungry all the time. It’s not just about the food. It’s about what these cravings are signaling, especially regarding your hydration and health.

Normal Food Cravings in Senior Years?

Wondering if food cravings are just a part of getting older? It’s common to joke about not being pregnant, so why the cravings? It’s important to differentiate between normal appetite fluctuations and signs that something else might be going on.

Overeating but Losing Weight?

If you’re eating more than usual but still losing weight, it could be a sign of something more complex, like diabetes. Unexplained weight loss combined with increased appetite could point to how your body is managing (or not managing) blood sugar.
