are you eating a lot of salty foods? or do you add a lot of salt? that could make you pretty thirsty later on. :(

Some medicines can give you a dry mouth and you feel thirsty all the time, if you take any meds check the side affects. Also if you eat a lot of salt or sodium-rich products that can make you thirsty. I take a med that makes my mouth and throat really dry all the time and I'm always thirsty.

I don't eat alot of salt.I don't add any to cooking and the only time I get any salt is maybe with potato chips.And thats not every day.

The only meds I take are birth control pills :)


I think I'll make an appt. to get retested...just to be safe!!

I would get retested. That would be my advise too. That is one good sign of diabetes.

I would talk to the Dr. if I were you.... May not be anything, but could be a number of things.....Diabetes, or kidney dysfunction...Just get checked...

I ditto. Often diabetes shows up unannounced, the patient had negative tests before, and wham they are drinking like crazy. Get it checked. If it's not that it is a sign that something is out of whack.
