What is it?

Increased appetite is when someone wants to eat more than he usually does. Increased appetite occurs physiologically after physical exertion or due to hormonal changes. But if appetite is constantly increased it may indicate a health condition such as stress, anxiety, depression, medication side effects, pregnancy, hyperthyroidism, grave’s disease, diabetes and hypoglycemia. Diagnosis is based upon findings from medical history and physical examination. Further evaluation may include blood tests and imaging tests. Treatment depends on the underlying cause.
