Hypoglycemia or poor diet symptoms ?

Hi guys.

I get hungry fast, even after a big meal. I think I'm putting on weight because I eat so much. I don't eat simply because I want to, I eat because I feel hungry and I get unpleasant symptoms like feeling that my body is shaking, light headiness and a hunger/burning feeling in my stomach. I get thirsty/dry mouth quite a lot aswell though, I don't know if it's all in my head because I KNOW these symptoms are linked with diabetes.

This has been happening for about 12 months now, I went to my doctor about it because I had anxiety that I may have been diabetic or something. He said it was the anxiety causing it and I shouldn't worry about it.

90% of my anxiety has now gone away, but there's something in the back of my mind saying that I may be a diabetic or have hypoglycemia.

I did some researching around and I don't know if it could just be my diet that makes me feel hungry a lot. The majority of food I eat is pretty much junk food. I do try to eat a lot of whole grain though, in the day for example, if I feel hungry I'll tend to eat a sandwich, usually with brown bread.

I don't seem to be balancing my food out though, I'll eat fruit/veg now and then, but mainly I seem to eat sandwiches and eat cereals.

Could these symptoms I'm having just be down to a poor diet or could their be something medical wise?

What foods are the best to keep you feeling full for as long as possible?

Proteins and fats, but the good stuff. Fruit should also be eaten as your only sugar source.
