I posted this under Diabetes because that is what my doc thinks its relative to . I am always thirsty and constantly drinking and going to the bathroom all day . I will go through 6- 8 cups of coffee--and about 2 gallons of water during a normal day . My sugar tests always come back under 120 . Docs have done many blood tests and say I have mild Diabetes and have me on Metamorphin I believe it is . It is very frustrating but sometimes I drink fluids until I am ready to burst. I am on Avalide for high BP but have talked to others with diabetes ( some on insulin ) and on BP meds and they drink nowhere near whay I do or feel thirsty all the time. My body weight can fluctuate as much as 10 lbs during the week ( daily 3-5 max ) . I do have occular Rosacea ( shows lightly on skin ) and taking tetracycline- High BP but otherwise feel fine. I have tryed forcing myself NOT to drink--if I do that I sometimes get real lightheaded and queezy at my stomach and feel like passing out . As I have said I have talked to many with sugar and none have this issue.
Hi! I have Type 2 Diabetes and one major symptom for me was extreme thirst and urinating, so it does sound like diabetes to me. Have you had an A1C test done? That tests your storage glucose over a 3 (or 6) month period. Ask your dr for one, the name for it is HA1C (that is short for Hemoglobin A1C) Good luck to you!
