When i work a 16 hr shift i seem to be more hungry than i normally do on a 8 hr shift. why is that? does it have to do with my low blood sugar?

Possibly: please ask your private physician to perform a 2 hour GTT ( glucose tolerance test). Try eating 5-6 small meals daily 3 small snacks and 3 regular meals/day. Hydrate with 8-10 8 oz glasses of electrolyte rich fluids and get examined.
