Hi Kristin,

Thanks for your question! Are you following a low-carb diet? Are you under stress? Do you live a sedentary lifestyle? Though sugar cravings are often linked to pre-diabetes and diabetes, there are many other culprits - including low levels of serotonin, depression and your body’s addiction to sugar due to your eating habits.

Your body's reaction to varying levels of carbohydrates in your diet can initiate sugar cravings. If you do not get enough exercise, your body can fail to produce enough serotonin, which causes sugar cravings. Please inform your doctor of your symptoms for an accurate diagnosis. Intense sugar cravings could also signify underlying medical conditions.

Did that answer your question? Please check back and let us know how you are  doing.

Warm Regards,
