YOUR’RE CONSTANTLY THIRSTY
With abnormal and frequent urination, dehydration becomes a real possibility. And to make matters worse, people who don’t know that they have diabetes often quench their thirst with sugary drinks.
Signs of dehydration include extreme thirst, dark-colored urine, and dry mouth. In fact, dehydration is normally accompanied by temporary or prolonged dryness of the mouth. As you consume more fluids to satisfy your excessive thirst (polydipsia), you will urinate even more.
Feeling thirsty at various times of the day is normal and an adequate water intake is important since water is essential for many bodily functions. However, if you are thirsty all the time and/or your thirst continues after drinking, then it can be a sign that there is a problem.
