There are a few but: Most diseases that cause wt gain do so without increased appetite. Hypothyroidism adrenal gland come to mind. If hungry more and gaining weight, i look in a different direction. Do you sleep well at night? How is your energy level? What about stress? Family history of type 2 diabetes? It may be that the reward system is activated because your not sleeping well then tired, do private consult.
