Your grandson I guess is having Type I Diabetes.
It is insulin dependent.
Hunger is a sure sign of hypoglycemia(low blood glucose).
I think his diabetic treatment is mismanaged.
Monitor and control his blood.
Insulin dose should be adjusted to the optimum.
frequent and small meal should be give to prevent hypoglycemia
