Extreme Hunger linked to food intolerance?


Im a 25 year old female and lately i have been so so hungry, and no matter what i eat, i never fill up. In the past year i have found out that I have a high intolerance to Dairy and also a mild wheat intolerance. I have pretty much cut out dairy, except for chocolate, but still eat wheat as i am able to tolerate it most of the time, but lately i have noticed more and more IBS type symptoms (constipation, bloating, stabbing abdominal pain and diarrhoea) and also this feeling of hunger all day long. I have lost quite a lot of weight in the last year and I keep active, so i do tend to eat a lot normally, so i dont understand why im so hungry still! I go through periods of eating so much, but have not put on a pound...Im wondering if my food intolerances are causing my body not to absorb anything, so im getting no energy or satiation from food?

I would really appreciate some advice on what i should do as this is driving me crazy!

Re: Extreme Hunger linked to food intolerance?

I'm not sure about feeling hungry all the time, but you might want to look into Crohn's Disease. That causes sudden weight loss, and the inability for your intestines to absorb vitamins and minerals. It's usually accompanied by a lot of abdominal pain, also, but your increase in different IBS symptoms could be the beginning of it.
