Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Where was the stroke lesion?
Typically, Frontal lobe involvement can cause this type of behaviour.
Hypothalamic lesions can affect hunger.../ low sugar levels from insulin could be contributing...
Reactive depression may be responsible in some...

There are several issues involved - knowledge of lab, MRI, examination will all be necessary for proper assessment and assistance...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
