Don't feel hungry for 6 hours after taking my meal. Is there any problem in my digestive system?

1 Doctor Answered
Feeling hungry after eating could be due to leptin resistance. Someone with normal leptin function will not feel hunger after eating until it's time for the next meal. This is because the body secretes leptin when you've had enough to eat and tells your brain you're full.
