Re: Son is sneaking food at night

It is probably not that people with DS love to eat more than anybody else. I think it is true that they may not recognize the full feeling and/or not make the correlation between overeating and health problems it may cause. My brother newly diagnosed type 2 diabetes) has caught on quite well that he should drink diet beverages or water, but we still have to remind him about desserts and sweets.
