In another Edelman Report, Dr. Steven Edelman, an endocrinologist living with diabetes invites guest Dr. William H. Polonsky, a clinical psychologist, President of the Diabetes Behavioral Institute, and author of a book called Diabetes Burnout: What to Do When You Can’t Take It Anymore. They talk about something called the “werewolf syndrome”.

The werewolf syndrome is a phrase coined by Polonsky to refer to late night binges that so many people, with or without diabetes often succumb to. In this video he talks about why willpower isn’t the answer and instead the two doctors discuss the things you can do to curb nighttime eating which can mess with our blood sugar levels, weight, and other health-related goals.
