New Pancreas Quiets Cravings
I read with interest Scott”s recent column (“Starting the Conversation”) in which he described eating all the ice cream. Having spent 36 years as a type 1, and now almost seven years cured after a kidney/pancreas transplant (KPTX), I have a unique perspective.
When I was a diabetic, I was always hungry. After the KPTX. the hunger disappeared. It only occurs when I have forgotten to eat, and I no longer have cravings for any particular food.
Maybe the craving and occasional fits of gorging are due to rebellion against supposed deprivation. But maybe they are physiological, considering that our glucose levels are never consistently in a normal range. Just a thought.
