Binge eating and the fear of low blood sugar

When my blood sugar drops I have a really hard time controlling my eating.

For many living with diabetes this is common. Some of us, myself included, will also over eat to try to prevent low blood sugar later on.

I talk about how low blood sugar can trigger me to binge eat- even though I’m not actually hungry. It’s been helpful for me to understand that feeling low blood sugar is just as much of an emotional experience as it is physical. I share insights on how the fear of low blood sugar affects the diabetes community thanks to my friends at dQ&A.

Low blood sugar can be scary but if we take half a second to slow down while we’re treating we can prevent over eating.

I’m Taylor Daniele


My core belief is that you can carve your own path. Unafraid to stand in the gap, I started Healing In Hindsight™ after noticing that there weren’t many millennials of color that I could connect with. Being of black and thai descent, I was diagnosed at 25 with type 2 diabetes. I found the transition into managing my condition difficult. My hope is to have thoughtful conversations about how anyone living with diabetes can thrive by finding a way to manage that fits them.
