About a week ago, I developed this thing where I never feel full. I've looked up the symptoms of diabetes and "extreme hunger" is a symptom. I wouldn't say I have extreme HUNGER, but I feel like even when I eat a huge meal that normally would leave me feeling miserably full, I just feel "satisfied" to slightly still hungry. I wouldn't call it "extreme" but I don't like the fact that I don't feel full.
What brought on my concern was a few weeks ago my doctor told me I had elevated liver enzymes, and I know that diabetes is a possible cause of this. (So that's the "second" symptom).
I did eat incredibly unhealthily for about a week leading up to this issue of hunger happening, I don't know if that could be a cause for this or not. But since, I've been eating really well and I can never feel really full. Occasionally in the last week I've cheated and ate a huge meal with the same results.
Should I be concerned about this? I had surgery last week and two bloodtests were ordered. This is where my elevated enzymes showed up. I do not, however, know if glucose levels were tested in either of these tests. Will doctors typically test glucose prior to surgery? I also have diabetes in my family which makes me suspicious. I do not have any of the other symptoms, but I know "no symptoms" is common.
I will be working with my doctor about this, but I'd love some insight. Thanks!
