I'm assuming you are a Type 2 diabetic? How are your blood sugars? What sort of diet are you eating? We really need more information to respond to your question.

No, with blood sugar in range,  and eating several times a day, you shouldn't be hungry all the time. Are you getting enough calories in general? Enough protein? Are you eating a very restricted diet? Are you losing weight? You might want to have your thyroid checked if you never have. You might want to ask for a referral to a nutritionist to help you balance your diet out so you are getting enough food to satisfy your hunger (without raising your blood sugar).
