Brief Answer: Please refer to the following suggestions... Detailed Answer: Hi, I read your medical history carefully and understood your concerns. Starving after eating could be related to: - stomach problems (possible gastritis due to medications you are currently taking) - reactive hypoglycemia (too much insulin secreted once you eat) To find out the right diagnosis, I'd advise to measure your blood sugar when you are feeling 'starving" and record for further evaluations. If blood sugar is within the normal range, I'd suggest to: - do upper endoscopy - consult a GI specialist to start treatment with omeprazole and anti-acids Meanwhile I'd advise to: - eat often and small portions - eat slowly - avoid foods high in calories or sugar - avoid carbonated drinks/caffeine/energetic drinks/alcohol/smoking - do not lay down immediately after eating - use 2 pillows when sleeping Looking forward to have the results of your blood sugar level or other tests you might perform! Thank you! Dr.Klerida
