sometimes i get kinds freaked out and wonder if there is some underlying condition...some dr house #

i am always thirsty.

admittedly i dont drink nearly enough water...i drink a lot of soda and a lot of tea. lately i have been drinking more water but my thirst is almost never quenched...

gatorade. powerade. does not matter.
constantly thirsty.

I have heard unquenchable thirst might be a sign of diabetes.

Water. 100% water.

Also, there is also a dry mouth condition: Xerostomia

Perhaps also.....cottonmouth.

Maybe the water's a bit dry where you are, try mixing it with some wetter water.

Slightly more seriously though, I know what you mean I do get the same thing from time to time. One thing I do is drink water up until about midday/lunchtime then I add a little electrolyte to it to drink for the rest of the day. I was told once that the body will only absorb so much water before it starts to pass straight through, adding electrolyte tricks it into absorbing a bit more.

Diabetes, this is how my dad found out he indeed has a sugar issue. Big time thirst, his was at night.

He is now on a pill that helps do what is needed to correct it.

Just my 2 cents.

Cut back on sugar. Even pre-diabetes makes a person too thirsty.

Home made ice tea - green or black. Big pitcher in the fridge unsweetened. Add lemon and stevia when you have a glass.
Or water with lemon and stevia.

thanks all.
i know i am not diabetic. i have had panels done yearly for the past several years. not checking for diabetes but just full panels and nothing comes back out of the norm.

i will read about xerostomia now.....

never heard of pre diabetes....hats scary

water 100%. that probably would solve my problem. i dont like to drink water but i have been forcing myself. i force myself cause i have prostate issues and i do drink a lot of tea/soda but even when i drink water i am not quenched.

i have not had cottonmouth in 37 days

you mean the stuff plants crave?

snowspirit, i do make tea but i suppose my mistake is the sugar. i can not drink unsweetened tea.
sweetened with lemon i can handle.

stevia??
what exactly is that?

not the same as the pink # that gives you cancer? sweet and low?
does stevia taste like sugar or is it off putting like sweet and low?

is it muay expensive?

im interested.

you think if i cut the tea sweetened with sugar way down and cut my soda way down and go to tea with stevia it would help?

would mint tea with stevia be ok you think? i like mint tea the best

Drinking excessive amounts of sugar plus the inflammation capabilities of caffeine can exacerbate a prostate problem considerably whereas water may help alleviate it..minus the frequent trips.

I'm either sorry or proud of you! Take whichever the appropriate response is.

Don't listen to Kali, she doesn't know what the hell she's talking about.

Drink Brawndo, it's the thirst mutilator.

Diabetes or Hypo and Hyper-glycemia. Easy to treat all with intake adjustments. Get a simple glucose test!

If you drink any soda pop, look at the amount of sodium. It is a lot.

Also it doesn't matter if it is gatorade (sugar) or soda pop (sugar) there is water in there. But it is shot that is stuck in there to make you want more that may make so thirsty.

How much salt or sodium is in your food?

I know when I eat at a china buffet I can not get enough to drink for the next 6 hours. I drink water or coffee almost exclusively.

and about the stevia do you think it would be 1 to 1

meaning if i take 1 spoon of sugar in whatever then it will be 1 spoon of stevia for the same level of sweetness or would i use less?

i ask cause i just googled stevia and the pics look like small plastic bottles vs a big ass brick of a bag

And you can pick up a tester CHEAP... The Dr. does not need to get his cut on this one.

Less, stevia is about 2X as sweet. I use 1/2 teaspoon sugar and 1/2 a paper envelope of stevia in my coffee (20 OZ)

its rough
i went back to my old job..
they do random cottonmouth tests. cant risk it

found a substitute though


its a bummer

anyway

seasonal, i dont put salt on anything after i cook it or order it but i dont know the content of what i eat.
i dont ever check labels
i dont eat the healthiest thats for sure..not the worst either

not much fast food unless its subway. just dont like it.
i do go to taco bell here and there. not even once a week.

at home i might have salad every day for a few days and then fried bologna(rock on) every day for a few days...
i just kind of eat whatever, whenever

with the glycemia or pre diabetes wouldnt i be a lard?

I'm in good health. I see my doctor monthly. I too am always thirsty and like you I drink a lot of sweet beverages. I drink more water during the summer though as my job dehydrates me very badly. I'm curious as well.
