My Story

Meet Chandra

Children with diabetes and their families face unique challenges when dealing with diabetes.

Do You Know Your Hunger Scale?

Feel free to substitute your own language and experience in these descriptions. Most people enjoy their food and eat comfortably when they are between a “3” and a “6” on the hunger scale.

You may have a headache. You can’t concentrate and feel dizzy. You may have trouble with coordination. You are totally out of energy and need to lie down. This may happen during a very restrictive diet.

You’re irritable and cranky and very hungry, with little energy. You may even feel nauseous. You are at the stage of being famished.

You are feeling an emptiness in your stomach. Your coordination begins to wane.

Your body is giving you the signal that you might want to eat. You are a little hungry.

Your body has enough fuel to keep it going and is physically and psychologically just starting to feel satisfied.

…the point of satisfaction.

 Yet you can still “find room” for a little more. Your body says “no” and your mind says “yes” to a few more bites.
Maybe you shouldn’t have had more, but it tasted so good. Or, did you get caught up in the eating-is-the-thing-to-do syndrome because all of the activity was centered around food?
Maybe you didn’t eat all day to leave room for this meal and you feel heavy, tired, and bloated.You no longer feel like socializing; you’d rather be by yourself or go to bed. Did you miss out on the socializing because you felt focused on the food?
This is a typical Thanksgiving Dinner feeling – you are physically miserable, don’t want to or can’t move, and feel like you never want to look at food again.
